Yeah, he was pretty lively and faster than I thought he would be. Almost grabbed hold of my finger. I was pretty amazed at the size of him and we saw another not to far fro him that was even bigger... at least in my minds eye. This was such a fun dive. I am so used to diving at 80ft+ that this was truly a "fun dive" with not fun thinking needed.

We dove Wood’s Cove on the next dive and, being it was my first time in a kelp forest and surge, it was a bit more challenging. Still I am jealous that there is no shore diving close to me. If I want to dive, it’s always $100 for the boat and air and it’s always deep so there is never any considerable bottom time. Got my nitrox books though so that will change it a bit.

Thanks for the comments.

Don’t think so. But have heard they are not the best eating, and near impossible to hammer open to get the meat without wasting half the crab. I personally thing they are so cool to play with and uncommon that I would not waste them for a meal. If you hit Vets at night or under any pier you can get tons of Dungeness.
