Absolutely amazing. The quality, composition, and critters are absolutely stunning.
Thanks Tom! Perhaps I'll see you underwater soon.
Good chance of that!

I should be back in country around the 23rd, and hope to regularly hit some Thursday dives after that!

Re: Dolphins Swimming in Bioluminesce

In 10 years of diving I've experienced this in Puget Sound once.

Come on!!! I want it again! Has anyone seen a pattern to the appearance of this bioluminescence in Puget Sound?

Re: Good Sites for Low Tide?

Fun fact - Les Davis on a good minus tide will often have exceptional viz because the ebbing tide pulls the Puyallup River silt off the shore. Les Davis with great viz is wonderful!

My gills are so dried out... sigh.

Anyone have approximate water temps for inner sound dive sites? Might affect undergarment choices...

I have not done any personally, but there is a TON of Coral Restoration going on in Bonaire that is pretty impressive. A google search might turn up some leads of folks to talk to.

We had the local authorities that were working on the pumphouse yell at us about having a canopy up by the entryway because they said it blocked the way down. YMMV You might one to put the canopy up behind the 1st couple of parking spots and that way there's still plenty of Room for everybody to get...
