Skyline Round 2

Post by H20doctor » Fri Sep 07, 2018 11:30 am

i skipped work and headed out to Anacortes with the camera gear and scooter loaded up ... arriving at the parking spot i had a front slot there at the beach ..Ohhhhh Ya tasty :supz: :supz: ... the wind was blowing a bit and creating some waves from the south as i waited for high tide slack.. I got in and zipped out to the point vrooooooom .. i dropped in the kelp beds to my surprise viz was excellent.. very clear ... The 2nd dive which was an Outgoing was full of nasty silt and goo from the river , it was really nasty to see the water column be effected by the river..

i was here for another Look at a New to me Nudi... a very small 8mm in size !! its called a Doto ... and from mondays dive i needed to see more of them , Well it turns out that right now there is a mass spawn event of them ... On my 2 dives I found over 50 of them and they are Laying eggs.. i was using 2 diaopters plus my 60mm lens .. and even then I could barely see them in my Lcd screen.. Dive 1 was flat and calm ... slack was beautiful with zero push of current.. Dive 2 was pulsing with start and stop south current.. it would build and then taper off a tad.. at the end of dive 2 i had to tuck into a outcrop in order to not get blown away back to the beach...
I had an excellent time at skyline seeing the beauty of this site ...
