We all survived last nights dive and as far as Vets, it only goes up from there. We were able to see and play around in the crustacean sandbox for a bit. Kudos to Anthony and Tony D for a new milestone dive he did great with the conditions. Maybe the intense swell and surf will blow away all the phyto plankton that are mucking up our diving right now.

It was a dive.........but what was the milestone for me? It was nice to dive with you guys.

Had you been in worse conditions then those before :-) That is what I call Macro Diving (a California specialty)

this still happening?
Tromptista - 3/14/2012 2:33 PM
Yup, we are still going. Conditions might be bad though as in 5 ft viz so might be a short kick around the sand.
