Re: Sea Spiders at Three Tree

Very cool snaps! Oh boy! Yes, junkyard has been completely flooded with spiders lately. The most I've ever seen. I saw maybe fifty last Sunday, and that was when looking for neon sea fleas, not spiders. To think about a year ago there were few spiders to be found! There are also lots of the neon sea...

Re: Pacific Red Octopus - Rare Capture

Nice snaps!!
I had a red octo go in the water column once too. In my case the red octo was pinned between a diver, the carousel boat and a GPO on the prowl. To escape he went into the water column and swam away. I got one shot.

Re: ThThTh 1/7

Hi!
Yes, you can get it the same day. It's pretty quick. But I think they close at 4 or 430. Hope to see you!

I'm going to pick mine up probably between around 1230 today. If you want I could pick one up for you if you prepay.

Who's up for diving this Thursday? The lumpies are getting of a perfect size for photography with a few more hues of color.

Re: Redondo Parking lot situation

Don't forget to renew your Redondo parking passes to do night dives at Redondo. Call 206-824-5700 option 3 to order. If you don't have a pass you risk being ticketed after park closure (which is officially at dusk, but in practice at around 8pm). Yes, they will ticket you even if you bought extra ho...

Re: Dive planning question

Hi. I continue to use xtide when using Northwest Shore Dives. It turns out that the corrections we all use are overly simplistic anyway. What may be -20 minutes on one day may be -40 on the next depending on the swing and the weather. Most sites aren't that much current anyway unless you go on a rea...

Re: New to the dive club

This part of the convo dealing with XTide should probably be moved to a new thread. But yes, xtide can still be useful. For some sites like Skyline, xtide is more usable. For deception pass, often xtide and noaa at 18 feet differ by 25 minutes, and neither prediction is consistently better. So we ki...

Re: Hello!

Welcome!
I'd think a drysuit would be easier to get into than a wetsuit. They can much much looser fitting if you get a tri-lam with a telescoping torso.
Hope you get out there, you'll love the creatures!

Re: Open Letter From Cindy Sund Regarding Sund Rock Changes

I only like to go there last-minute when the weather and tides are too crappy to go elsewhere and that's made much harder, sometimes impossible now with that reservation system.

That was a FANTASTIC camera back in the day! Probably still beats most out there.
We have a bunch of photographers that dive Redondo ThThTh every Thursday night (see the planning section), come on by some time!
