Re: Labor Day Skyline/Keystone underwater extravaganza

Great stuff Ross! That weekend was a blast! I think jess said 21 friends were seen over the course of the weekend. Highlights were definitely the candy, warbonnets and rockfish schools! You did well on the rockfish school, those are so hard to photograph! Will post some pics too soon.

Re: ThThTh 9/24

Great dive! Saw an octo with a new arm as was seen on My Octopus Teacher, then saw two octos quarrel over a presumably female octo in a den, then saw a squid devouring a fish, then saw a pink lumpy! Viz was great as well! We went to el Rinconsito after, with take out drinks from elsewhere A great ni...

Re: ThThTh 9/24

Dive moved to three tree north due to chance of wind gusts. I believe we'll have a small crowd this week. If there are any lurkers planning to go, let yourself be known as parking is limited. Will post here if it feels like the crowd is getting too big. Derek and seariously, let us know if you're in.

Very cool, so glad you were able to do this. Fascinating! Sadly I have nothing to report...at least not since 2005 and 2008.

Re: Redondo Parking lot situation

Btw there's a one way exit from the lot that has spikes if you go the wrong way. So once you're in you're good, no transponder needed.

Re: Redondo Parking lot situation

I just talked to them a bit more on the phone. I requested to them to keep the lot open til at least 6:30 as dusk will be super early in the winter and we're simply going to run out of parking spots. She said that it may work out that way. Somebody has to come by and close the gate and that will be ...

Redondo Parking lot situation

In case you missed it redondo.png "For a Facilities Use Pass, please contact the Des Moines Marina at 206-824-5700. Some restrictions apply." This really sucks! They will close the lot at dusk, and you'll only be able to park on the street (only with a permit). And the bathroom will be closed. I was...

Howdy folks! Who's up for diving Thursday night Sept 24th? Last week we saw lots of stubbies and sailfins, a couple of grunts, octos and more. I believe this will be the final week without requiring the new parking pass!

6:00-6:30pm meet Redondo

Re: The Hunt for NEON Crustaceans! *UPDATED*

My observation is that there are a lot of the drab ones at certain times of the year at certain sites. So perhaps only rare as in rarely noticed. I heard elsewhere there was an interest in studying if the color variants are separate species, not sure if that's the case here.

Hi
Welcome!
We've seen them at Alki Junkyard, Point Hudson and Skyline. You can search on this site for some images.
That purple one is really cool, where did you see that?

Re: Looking for photo buddies

Welcome! If you like photography, one of the best places to go is Keystone. It is wind and current sensitive but a couple of us are eyeing going there sunday afternoon if that works for you. There'll be current but it shouldn't be a problem with a briefing if you have reasonable experience with doin...

Re: Technical diver relocating to Anacortes / Bellingham WA area

Hi John Welcome! Bellingham Bay and Birch Bay are flat sandy areas, hence you'll not find much diving there. We have plenty of CCR/OC technical divers in the area (some on this board). There's a NWRebreatherDivers fb group. And several shops cater to tech. As for technical charters, we have a lot le...

In what form do you see the blue sharks? From the surface, or perhaps by fishing line?

How many mola molas did you see?

Re: Deception Pass

For the first time I suggest going there with somebody familiar with the site and your skill level. I might also suggest going there in the spring when the tides are weaker. Definitely scratch the nineth.

Hope to meet you at a dive site soon!

Re: Dive travel kinda bites right now

Are there any more soft enough tides for Deception Pass this year? I didn't notice any yet. There are a few days where Deception is possible left this year. Not on the part of the tide cycle you may expect them though. The best one is in a couple Fridays from now. I recommend first timers go on a l...
