|Drifting before the storm.|
Posted by Merry on March 26, 2012 at 10:04:53:|
Phil and I have had pretty fair success squeaking in a dive the day before a storm. So on Sat., we rounded up Kevin Lee and headed two miles offshore for a drift dive.
Phil's favored method is to hang off a lift bag, which allows the diver to drift at the same rate as the gelatinous animals. We let out as much or as little line according to the depth of the subjects, then get neutral so there's no tugging on the line. It's very peaceful and almost magical as the animals pulse beside the diver and/or move vertically in the water column.
Kevin and I jumped into the current line in flat seas and no wind, so the boat didn't move very far from us. We stayed within sight of each other throughout most of the dive.
