Re: God's Pocket is back, and better than ever!

Love the lighting on the red Irish lord and striped nudibranch photos. Glad to hear things are running smoothly already. Cool to see some of the people I follow on Instagram there!

Ha. Thank you. She was actually there teaching a student the basics and more keyed in on getting the mantas, turtles, and whale shark.

Re: Thailand - Similan and Surin Islands

The Bad: Some of the reefs, especially in the southern Similans, show signs of coral bleaching, and there are many areas that are still devastated from the 2004 tsunami. User derekcs mentions East of Eden; this site was our first on the trip and it was a wasteland of damage. I didn't understand why...

Thailand - Similan and Surin Islands

Recently spent a week on The Junk liveaboard off of Phuket, Thailand. We spent 5 days diving in the Similan and Surin Islands in the Andaman Sea. The diving, at its best, was really spectacular. Richelieu Rock is the highlight of the trip. We spent 1 day out of 5 there. It's covered in a rainbow of ...

Re: ThThTh 3/21 Dive & BBQ report

Fun dive! Spent most of it in the bottle field. 2 stubby squid, a red octo, couple grunts, a lumpy at 80 ft. And a big fat moon snail. https://photos.smugmug.com/Underwater/Seattle-Diving/Redondo-Beach-Park-2019-03-21/i-dCBHMxD/1/0b310dc4/M/_DSC2564-M.jpg https://photos.smugmug.com/Underwater/Seattl...

Skyline Wall - St. Patrick's Day

Met stphnmartin, vjw, and ScubaJess at Skyline on Sunday morning. The weather was great to the point where the 46 degree water didn't really bother me. The current was much stronger than expected, blowing us away from the entry point (west?). Made focusing the camera very difficult. Was shooting som...

Keystone Super Bowl Sunday

Met up with ScubaJess, YellowEye, stphnmartin, vjw at Keystone yesterday. Got in before it started snowing. Viz was subpar. 5-10 ft maybe? Cloudy enough to make photographing difficult even with macro. But still lots of life. Cockerell's dorid, Hudson's dorid, clown nudibranchs, multicolor dendronot...
