The ocean was much calmer than last week around Palos Verdes. Long intervals between 2 1/2' swells and no wind. Naturally, we got socked in by fog as we arrived on the south side of the peninsula. We weren't the only crazies out in the pea soup. We saw a boat nearby on RADAR and approached slowly. Scott and Ian took a guest to the Underwater Arch.
We checked out the resident moray eel, who was happy to mug for the cameras.
There are now five Hopkin's Rose nudibranchs on the same rock. I've only seen that at Shaw's Cove. The rest of the dive was somewhat boring. Although visibility has improved it was surgy and most of the animals had gone into hiding.
We waited two hours for the fog to lift but it was having none of that. We switched our focus to the Redondo Barge instead.
Visibility at each site was just under fifteen feet with 52°, about the same conditions as topside.
