Bouncing on the Barge

The wind was up at 7:30 this morning. We bounced our way out to the barge at slow speed and dropped into dirty water. It cleared up on the bottom to a decent twelve to fifteen feet visibility. As the current picked up forty minutes later the vis dropped to five feet.

Not a lot of critters out today. Merry found five octopus and I found a few nudibranchs but none of the ones we have found during recent dives here.

Very warm water at the surface with 54 on the barge.
