Re: Viz Reports Thread

Rockaway Beach 05Jun21 10:30ish -- A craptastic 5feet... maybe opening up to 7 at about 85fsw. So yeaahhh... there's that. Enough to keep track of your buddy. Barely.

A friend reported similar vis at Harper Pier early afternoon.

Re: Viz Reports Thread

16May2021 am -- Fox Island West Knee Wall (calling it a wall when it's like less than 10 feet high seems ingenuous)

5 feet in the shallows to about 15 fsw
10-15 along the wall to about 65fsw

Stay salty, y'all...

Re: Fox Island Bridge tomorrow

Thanks for the replies all, really appreciate it. Good dive. We splashed about 7:15. Had a light west current throughout the dive, definitely stronger (not surprisingly) near midspan... I'd say minimum may have been maybe 7:45 or a little later, so actually was pretty happy with the way it played......

Fox Island Bridge tomorrow

All, A friend and I are planning a splash at the Fox Island Bridge tomorrow (3/20/21 - Sat ~715ish am). I know it can be an A$$kicker for current if timed wrong so appreciate wisdom from those who have gone before me at the site. Sites (presumably models) disagree a little on slack time, but seems b...

Sept 6, Les Davis

Great vis at Les Davis ... still had a 5' layer of snot down to about 15 fsw but after that opening up to a glorious 25+ foot of vis. Great day for a dive

Shout out to the young newly certified folks we met there. Keep on diving (sorry, forgot your names already)

Re: Viz Reports Thread

Also CRAZY 20F+ thermocline about the same depth -- Literally dropped 20F in 3-5 Feet descent at about 45fsw, if that.

Choose... see things and freeze, or be warm but unable to ascertain tank pressures as you deco.

Re: Viz Reports Thread

Sund Rock, South Wall Saturday 6/27/2020 am Snot-tastic down to 45 -- Sub 5 foot of loose your partner holding hands visibilities Then opened up reasonably down to 75 or so to 25'+ of vis. 6ish GPO's deep... about as many wolfies shallow... plus some lemon margined and giant nudis... so a solid coup...

Re: Stubbies & Worms

You know those worms swim into your ears and lay eggs that hatch into larvae that latch onto and feed on your brain stem, right? haven't you seen the Wrath of Kahn? It's a close relative of the Centaurian Slug. So you've been warned. Seriously though... what were those? some sort of flat worm? Haven...
