Re: Hoodies on the Hood

Wow! Dove this site several years ago, and it was terrible - all rubble, sand, and 4 ‘Twinkie’ nudis. Good to know there’s more life there now and specifically, hooded nudis! :joshsmith:

Re: A Howe Sound Weekend

Searching for little critters in the beautiful sponges was fun, and seeing the hundreds of moving brittle stars was really cool! Nice find on the grunt sculpin on eggs. Saw some grunts but missed the one on eggs. Got a new camera and housing set up and had fun and frustration with it for the first t...
