It has been a while I have been hearing about this site and finally we ended up diving here.It was one of those off days for me, under weighted, cold, unorganized with the camera, especially with fat fingers. But, it was still an awesome dive. It is a beautiful site, which has to offer all kinds of terrain. Boulders, wall (I didn’t see, I heard about it), crevices, sand. All were there.
We entered between low and high tide. I don’t care what people say about this site, I had the hardest time getting in and coming out. It was slippery close to the water so I sat, slowly dragging my ass on the rocks, making my tailbone “ouch!” at every touch. Coming out was on all fours, miserable! Took probably 20 mins to get on my feet, funny view for the people, and yes, there was audience 🙂
We were talking about lump fish before the dive and within first 10 minutes of the dive I saw three of them. They were babies, a little scared but so freaking cute.
This time of the year a lot of creepy crawlers could be find, due to the really low numbers of fish which would otherwise eat them. A lot of little bugs that I wouldn’t be able to identify, weird worms, etc.
Skeleton shrimp, lobster, a few varieties of really tiny nudibranchs, rock gunnel, crabs, clam worm (yuck!) were among the things I could identify in this dive.
Again note to self, not only check if your camera is working before the dive, make sure you have the right settings. Otherwise you may end up with shitty jpeg formats of your photos!
