Re: Spring diving at Deception Pass

Nice snaps!
Yes there were a couple days with over a dozen divers. Several days with only 3 of us, guess you can't guess who :)

Attached one of my scenes:

Re: Good Sites for Low Tide?

A couple things can make high tide dives better than low tide dives: + easier water access at some sites. Salt water state park for instance would be a long walk in the mud at low tide + high tide often can have better visibility as the water is more diluted vs mixing down in the mud flat you often ...

Re: New Transplant from the Midwest

We'll probably be at keystone for 9. We were going to do deception but the forecast + that tide doesn't look for a pretty exit.

Re: New Transplant from the Midwest

Great! Is the nearby brewery you speak of The Diamond Knot? Fun place to go, just because its named after a local shipwreck/divesite. Don't go if you have a peanut allergy though, lol. Another nearby option is the Mukilteo Lodge, slightly better food. A couple of us are on Whidbey tomorrow, let us k...

Re: New Transplant from the Midwest

The ideal time to jump in on Sunday is at 6:15 am. 5pm is also a better choice. You want to jump in slack before flood if you can. The slack before ebb is hard to predict and would be way easier than 11. Try maybe 9 splash if those other times don't work for you. When the currents are running you ha...

Re: New Transplant from the Midwest

Welcome! Keystone's is a great dive site! Unfortunately, you just hit the end of Keystone season! You can dive keystone at other times but the tides are best the first half of the year, which is now past. The sweet spot is to dive this site an hour before slack on a mild flood (1.5 knots or preferab...

Re: Hello All

Hi. Welcome!

We have a member, I don't think that comes here much, who lives in Hoquiam. I know he's been wanting to do some exploring in that area (he comes as far north as Deception Pass to dive with us!). Found anything good around there?

It’s really great to dive this site from the Bandito as well. Hope they are up and running again soon.
Banditos started running last weekend at limited capacity.

Can't wait for them to start the SJI's :partydance: but I think that's later

Re: A couple IDs from Alki Junkyard please

Very cool! I found a neon sea flea in that color variation at Point Hudson about a month ago as well! Wouldn't probably have noticed it had I not seen Jesse's photo first!

Re: Critter creeper

Hi! I'm not sure who was at Keystone that day, but there's a nwrebreatherdivers group on facebook where you could ask if you were super curious to stalk them. I used to dive rebreathers exclusively over for 10 years. I'd have plenty of 3 hour long dives at Keystone, going no deeper than the end of t...

Active topics

Hi Calvin. I noticed the 'show active topics" feature now only shows 7 days worth of posts by default. I can change it but doubt most people would notice that. Intentional?

Hope you're well

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...
