Re: Possession Point Ferry

There used to be a buoy at each end. My last dive there July 2018 there was no buoy on the surface. On July 2017 there was a buoy so some time between.

Re: The Bottle Thread

How old is it? It has a grab mark on a side and bottom. Bottom is smooth except a bit of an edge that seems like its a cap. One small bubble.
Label side is flat the other rounded.

From shore?

I haven't done it from shore yet but intend to. There is access. I'd use scooter.

Re: Gray whale behavior

Maybe a combination of dredging a bit too far and decay. Toss in some damage due to anchoring the construction barge. It's still a decent dive but not a Ling hot spot.

Re: Gray whale behavior

I did not see the "No Diving" sign. The barges are still there, just decayed almost to the point of rubble. I don't believe they were dredged. Here's the marina plan that shows dredging was planned inside and was authorized only to the entrance. m The 3 Vermilion are still at 95 FSW. There...

Re: Small tide change better visibility ???

Too may variables that are usually more important than tidal current. All else being equal at a given site it may be true. However it may be the opposite if the site is silty and it gets stirred up by divers. Then you want current to clear the area.
