Re: Key Largo, 6/8/19

I dove with Quiescence back in March when I was down in SE Florida for a business meeting. We went our to Elbow Reef, too, and had a great time. Just curious if the guide you followed was Alexa? We dove with her and chatted with her about diving up here in the PNW. She is apparently from Oregon and ...

Re: ThThTh 6/13?

I can’t dive on Thursday due to travel, but I would appreciate a visibility report if you all do dive. I may try to get down to Redondo on Saturday morning if it is not too soupy.

Anemone riding a crab

Last night while in the bottle field at Redondo, we spotted a medium sized Dungeness crab that had a Swimming Anemone sitting on the top of its shell. The crab seemed oblivious (well, as oblivious as a crab can seem) to its passenger that was riding around on top of it as it walked along. Unfortunat...

Re: Sunnyside Beach and Sund Rock -- NAUI AOW Days 1 and 2

No, we didn't see any lobsters. Or wolf eels or octopuses for that matter, which I have heard are usually abundant at Sund Rock. I think we were a little task overloaded dealing with the visibility which kept me from really being able to look for critters. We're definitely going to go back to Sund R...

Re: Bubbles and Suds - TDock - 3/27

If Bubbles and Suds is not happening on 5/15, you may want to call 8 Diving in Des Moines and see if their weekly shop dive is happening on Wednesday at Redondo and whether you can join.

Was a little better midday today at Redondo. Was <5' until 25' then maybe 15' below that. We saw a stubby squid, though (our first), so it was worth descending below the snot.

Re: Saturday April 20th Redondo Clean up dive, meet at 8am

Yep it is. Redondo is less current sensitive than many other sites, that's why we can pull it off. Redondo can sometimes have unexpected current, known to divers as the Redondo River. Usually it is short lived and at the bottom of a very large ebb, but not always. Just out of curiosity and future p...

Re: Viz Reports Thread

Redondo on April 9 was 10'-15' by the MaST center (maybe due to the low tide, recent rain and outfall there), but closer to 20'-25' a bit farther north.
