Back in the water after a few weeks off and what a day to be out! It was absolutely the most beautiful day you could imagine; sunshine, wispy clouds, no wind, no swell, and 80F. People were swimming, paddle-boarding, diving, beach combing, walking their dogs and all of them were saying to themselves;"...this is why I live here..."

Out on the reef it was more of an average day, vizibility was 15'-20' but we could see the surface pretty much the entire dive. Unfortunately the kelp seems to once again be taking a hit. Earlier this year it had grown back to nearly pre-El Nino conditions but it has drastically declined once again. Sargassum is back, more so in the shallows then out on the deeper reaches, but it's around.

Critter sightings: an uptick in lobsters (50FSW), Opaleyes, Sargos, lots of small Blacksmiths and a few large kelp bass hiding on the reef. This Yellow Sea Fan caught my eye:
