San Juan Islands Weekend

Post by YellowEye » Mon Oct 19, 2015 5:12 pm

Hi
We had a ton of fun this weekend going to the San Juan Islands on the Lu Jac's Quest.

Great viz, great buddies, great diving! Good to see some fellow nwdc members too!

The dive sites were Breakfast Rock, Eagle Point, Davidson, Swirl Reef. It was mostly cloudy with occasional drizzle. But you can see we had some sun too.

Here were some of the snaps!

Hello Divers!

Here's some of my pictures from our 2 days of epic diving in the beautiful San Juan's! I love all the color and life up there! We had the perfect weather and everyone on Lu Jacs Quest was super nice! Glad I got to meet some fellow NWDC Peeps!

Thanks so much to my awesome dive buddy YellowEye for teaching me so many camera tips! And for finding that massive Puget Sound King Crab! :notworthy:

Hope you all enjoy! :popcorn:

Cool photos! I'm just on my way back from a week in the Philippines, and these remind me of how great the diving is in our area. Just really cold.

Love the macro shots as always, Jess!
