Re: Big fields of sea pens at alki junkyard

Hi Calvin
I looked a few times, didn't see any critters. Sometimes you can see eggs inside seapens, didn't see any of those either.

I did however find a mermaid's purse on the dive. A huge one, my first ever!!!

Big fields of sea pens at alki junkyard

Howdy Folks I went diving at alki junkyard yesterday, low tide. The sea pens there were in numbers greater than I've ever seen there, and quite large too. They got quite thick at 60'. So if you want to go see some nice seapens, go check it out! There were lots of striped nudis, their predator, as we...

Diving during the lockdown

Seattle.gov says scuba is still open, so yay! But it says to do so alone or with family. So no ThThTh this week. https://parkways.seattle.gov/tag/covid/ Jan found the following note: OLYMPIA – Today, the Washington State Parks and Recreation Commission (Parks) and the Washington State Department of ...

Very nice! What are those birds out there? Are they feeding off the same stuff?

Re: Saltwater state park 21-Mar-2020

Very cool! Thanks for the pics and report! Your seastar is a stimpson star. We saw one at Redondo today to. Great to see! Funny your max flood dive had no current. Perhaps you hit high tide slack? It may have come early given the huge ebb. The slacks were quite ill-timed at keystone on Saturday due ...

Re: Brand new to diving, new to board

Welcome! Maybe see you at Keystone! It's one of the better dives in your parts!
A bunch of us from the Seattle area like to go there often when the tides allow.

Support your LDS

Hi
I was in a dive shop today. I heard they're struggling to run classes due to pool closures. This could be tough on their business, not being able to run classes. So if you need a new computer/drysuit/tank etc, now may be the time to buy.

Re: Need a new drysuit recomendations

I'm not sure how to take this review. How often do you have it in for repair? And what repairs? pinholes? Wearing through in spots? Seems coming undone? I know drysuits leak, and I know how to repair them (with a 14 year old neo suit I'm getting REALLY good at it), but that suit didn't experience m...

have not heard anything good about santi's in a long time despite their cult following. failed fabric, failed seams, crazy long repair times ugh I've got a Santi. Now that 8 does repairs, the turn around time is great. The last repair I had took less than a week! This is a super comfortable suit, I...

ThThTh 3/5

Anybody up for Thursday night diving this week? It'll be a 0 foot tide but I think any river would have passed by splash time. Last week we had some lumpies, lots of horned shrimp, a sea spider, a stubby, octos, nudis, gunnels, snailfish and more. Redondo 6:30pm meet, pub after, hope to see you there!

Re: Dive site mooring

We went to Shangri La today. No mooring. Come to think of it I don't think I've seen a mooring there since there used to be a charter there. We were able to anchor, no live boat required. Less than ideal but works.

It'll be a low tide, with a chance of the Redondo River.

We dove there today, and saw sea spiders, striped nudis, a neon sea flea, an adult and juvie stubby squid, pmh's, an amphipod nest (!!), an...

Re: Dive site mooring

Hi! Welcome to nwdiveclub! Hmm, I'm not sure but my guess is the number of moorings has gone down, as there's not as many charters out there maintaining them (particularly in the hood canal). You may want to ask WSA. The better sites that I know that have them are Sunrise, Shangri-La, Flagpole. Salt...

Hmm George, I think its more towards the end of ebb. Anyway we went Jan 9-- almost exact same tide cycle as tomorrow -- and it was HOWLING at the pipe at the usual ThThTh splash time, for probably 20 mins. Probably best to assume it can strike anytime on a strong ebb and just be mentally prepared. 1...

Re: ThThTh 2/6?

Hi
The river seems to be strongest at the pier and north of there but is also present on the south end.
BTW: I did find a lumpy on the north end when I checked a couple weeks ago.

Hope you're well!
