Spectacular photos guys! I really like the RIL shot with the diver in the backround and also the hydroids with the nudi. Yelloweye, your wide angle shots are easily as good as anything in publication. Both of you keep up the excellent work!!!

So glad you guys got to go there and do your 500th dive there, SJ!!! These pics are on fire!! The colors are so vibrant, and I especially like how many different colored anemones you both both captured in photos - macro and wide angle. Awesome!

Wow beautiful snaps YE!!!
They turned out so good. You really captured how covered in life the walls were. So much to look at and enjoy! I was so happy to dive with such a fun group and have excellent viz and sea critters galore. :luv: Was also so Epic when the huge GPO almost landed on my at Browning wall for dive 501.

I really hope a group of divers will buy God's Pocket so it can Live Long & Prosper. :luv: :joshsmith: :eric: :partydance:
However It will never be the same without Bill & Annie. They are just the BEST!!!

Here are a few of my snaps from the 15 excellent dives. :popcorn: :pirate: :eric: :taco:

God's Pocket - Trip Report

Postby YellowEye » Sun Apr 01, 2018 11:41 am

Howdy Folks
As reported in another thread, SJ and I took a quick last-minute trip to God's Pocket, in order to hit it before Bill and Annie retire.

We dove with a great group of divers from Ocean Pro Diving, from up in Whiterock. Visibility was fantastic, marine life was great, and the dive buddies were super fun as well! Here are some of the snaps from the trip. Also seen were bald eagles, sea otters, seals, sea lions, rhinoceros auklets, black turnstones and other cool sea birds. What a great trip!

Let's hope they keep this place running!
