Nubble lighthouse is not a place we visit very often. Main reason is that if that site fails due to bad surface conditions there aren’t many options around for backup, at least we don’t know of any other. This week the weather report said southern winds, so it should be ok there. We headed for a rather late, mid day, high tide dive. I like high tide there. Last time I dove there it was low tide and I was miserable crawling up the slope, it took freaking 45 mins to get on my feet. Tho that’s probably me 🙂
During summer time we are only allowed to dive there on saturdays in the weekend. The weather being good after fairly shitty and cold times it was really crowded, both divers and regular people. (Divers are not regular people! 😛 )
The water felt much colder than my last dive in Cape Ann two weeks ago. My computer did not work so I have very little information on the dive. But Bert said it was 44 F. I know it was cold. The dive was quite awesome. It started slow, few gunnels here and there. We did not see as many nudis as you would expect this time of the year. When we were at the sandy patch it just became a flounder parade where marching band was sand shrimp. But, really, flounders were everywhere. Towards the end we were also surrounded by a school of pollock.
So, basically flounders defined the dive. I had many close ups of flounders, which is always fun to look at, because they are just weird.
~60 min, ? ft, 15-20 ft viz, 44 F
