This is getting really old. Until last year we were averaging ten dives per month. Weather and ocean conditions have cut that down to two dives per month. I made my first April dive today and with the swells arriving soon I don't know if I'll get back in this month.

At Golf Ball Reef the water was dark green with some surge. Visibility was eight feet at best so I didn't stray far from the barrel. Life seems to be returning to GBR but I didn't explore much today.

Juvenile Vermilion rockfish are flittering over the rocks again. I even found a two inch Thordisa rubescens near the barrel. I can't wait to see how much life there is next month.
