Sund Rock was pretty awesome. I'd guess 30'. Good time to go to the Hood if you can make it. Before the rivers / rain muck it up.

Saltwater State Park and KVI Towers (off Ocean Quest), 9/24 -- 18-20ft near the surface, improving with depth. Probably 30 feet of visibility deeper than 20fsw.

Or in other words: the clearest water I've seen here in the Sound since I started diving here this spring. :)

Octopus Hole 9/22, muck down to 40fsw, clearing below with 25' vis.

One big octo with its chromatophores going full tilt. White-gray, then turning deep red. Way cool!

Redondo was easily 30ft horizontal yesterday (9/16). Vertical vis was 40+.
We found thee red octos at various places along the deep line, plus a friendly juvenile wolfie. Lots of gunnels and gobies about. The amount of light still available on the bottom was amazing, even at 80 fsw.

Both the first and second dive at Three Tree today I was able to see the surface from 55ft down. Obviously less when looking to the side, but still pretty darn good.
