ScubaJess I would say there was a plethora of squat lobsters.

The stars are still in good health. I saw 4. Hopefully they will come back in force. There could have been more but the vis was so terrible I had to swim right on top of anything in order to see it.

Sunflower sea star is gorgeous! We saw 3 at the Sund Rock a few weeks ago too.

I like that picture of the wolf eel nuzzling up to that sunflower star. Looks like a big healthy star too!

Awesome pictures! Excellent lighting on the nudibranchs. And I am so happy to see a really big sunstar!

Sund Rock 7/13

Post by lologrande » Sat Jul 14, 2018 11:31 am

Went down to Sund Rock on a rare Friday off. It was a really big exchange and visibility was not good. Current was moving pretty good too. More than I have ever felt at Sund Rock. I had the place all to myself. First dive I went with the wide angle lens and switched to macro for the second. FYI coordinating with Cindy to get access was super easy and communications were prompt.
