Dive Recap - 2 Dives - Buddies: Steve, Chris, Marco - No surf/ swell, warm water, depth: 35 ft, viz: 40+ in some spots, bottom time: 60 + minutes. 1st dive SSE( entry Honeymoon/ exit Xmas Tree), lots of fish, bat rays amazing clarity and color inside the kelp canopies. 2nd dive - straight West to right side of cove reef. Very shallow but lots of bugs around there and nice canopy. Steve and Chris broke in the club house with an all to follow.

A few of us may be going out the night before to get in a night dive(s). Spending the night down at the, I think Marco called it the NBTT club house. 1 - 2 night dives, 1- 3 day dives. (depending how many nights dives we make).
