Dive Recap - Nightlight to Night, Buddies: Steve, Ken, Marco Bottom Time: 45 Min / Depth: 40 ft (max), Temp: 62 (little warm) Visibility: 20 ft (outside crevice)
1-2 ft surf, light surge, STRONG current against us going out, easy entry, crystal clear water at the shore, Steve took us on the advanced tour complete with caverns, tunnels, caves, crevice. Not a lot of fish but tried unsuccessfully to save a baby bat ray that had gotten lodged near a rock and the urchins had pinned it. Also, some sheep head crab and saw a decent size halibut near sand while exiting. Fast and exciting back stage tour!
