Fox Island East & West Star Date: 2017101.4

Post by ScubaJess » Sun Oct 15, 2017 10:19 am

Happy Sunday!
I was lucky enough to dive with Gdog & StephenMartin yesterday. We hit up Fox Island East & West walls! It was nudibranch city down there! Also saw a cute baby grunt & a variety of fish! At one point we had a huge bait ball :luv: swim past it was AMAZING!!!

Followed by a 3rd dive at Red Hot in Tacoma! It was a fun day!

Here are a few snaps.

Great diving with you guys and braving the not so great exchange. Good thing I had the current direction 50% correct. Jess, I like the 4th shot down, the nudi. And I agree with YD about the alabaster on red gdog.

None of my video turned out.
