We hauled our boat out today for bottom paint and various maintenance procedures. We wanted to get in one last day of diving yesterday so Kevin Lee joined us for a day of fighting back the ocean. We had to get in some much needed bottom time.
At Halfway Reef life was nearly back to normal. With better than twenty-five feet visibility we could easily spot the hundreds of nudibranchs crawling among the bryozoa, sponges, algae and worms.
The same conditions were encountered at Golf Ball Reef. Life on the offshore reefs seems to be rebounding just in time for us to be out of the water. I found octopus, juvenile fish, crabs and lots and lots of nudibranchs, including one, Jorunna pardus that I had only seen once before.
The cooler 52° water likely helped bring life back to our favorite reefs.
