What a perfect day to be in the water. I don’t think I ever wanted to feel the cold water rushing into my wetsuit. When it did, it felt soooo good today. Even early hours of the morning the heat was hitting hard. The two round walk to the Halibut Point entry point did not help, either.
Finally, three of us (Bert, Mike and me) geared up and entered the water. Quickly took even heading towards north and submerged into green water. The water on the surface was quite warm (no data as I forgot my computer) but going through two thermoclines made me forget about the heat above the surface. Later I learn that the temperature at depth was 44F.
As we cut through the thermoclines the visibility also cleared up significantly. I can easily say it was around 30-40 ft at the bottom. Saw few flounders, one longhorn sculpin and one shorthorn sculpin. Bert reported a big tautog, which I missed :(.
Overall beautiful dive, as usual in Halibut Point. Can’t wait for the weekend to come and it will come in 2 days, yay!!!
