Blue Bird Day in the San Juan Islands

Howdy StphnMartin, JPA, ScubaJess, Scubie Do, Keith C, and VJW went out for a fantasic day of diving out in the San Juans yesterday. What a great day... Sares Head (CandyLand), Davidson Rock (brooding anemone city) and Long Island Wall (strawberry wall) all on one short-daylight day! The weather was...

Re: Lopez and Fidalgo Island, 10/13/18

It's an end of an era with Phil no longer out there :( I've had so much fun on that boat, I started diving it in 2002 just before Phil took it over. Wow, Candy! Great shots. I need to head out Sares soon. I hear it is hit or miss on the candy, but my buddy has the GPS for the snakelock part of the w...

Fall @ Keystone

Howdy Folks ScubaJess, DerekCS, JanK and I went to Keystone on Saturday. What a gorgeous day beneath the waves. The viz was a clear blue and there were tons of rockfish on the jetty. So good to see! Here were some of the snaps. DSC_4790.jpg DSC_5327.jpg DSC_5405.jpg Those of us off the island also w...

Re: Redondo 10/25

Very cool! Nice pictures! Which side did you find the lumpies on, north or south? Interesting to see they're on the eelgrass. We've usually been finding lumpies on clean broadleaf kelp this time of year, but the broadleaf kelp is looking in bad shape these days (dirt, bryozoans and holes). The lot w...

Re: October Diving

The yellow eye was a bit beat up and zombie-like, however not bad for likely being over 100 years old :)

It was actually a very impressive animal. Quite a bit larger than a normal rockfish at 3 feet long, and quite a bit wider in proportion!

Re: New Dive Buddies

Hi
We have dives nearly every Thursday night at Redondo. Come join us, check out the ThThTh threads in the planning section.

Several of us are also thinking about heading up to Keystone this weekend. Afternoon diving, if the wind holds, if that is of interest.

Tipping deck hands

Hi Folks
How much do you all tip deck hands on dive boats? Do you tip the same tropically as local? Multi day trips as single?

Just wondering what the going rate is.
