Lol! I actually was remembering your report on the Doto’s and tried looking for them but my eyes didn’t want to cooperate. I gave up pretty quick and tried to imitate the flipping off fish Instagram page instead (it’s a must follow for any instagram users)

Easily the worst dive around. Nothing to see but barnacles and hermit crabs. Plus the current will probably kill you even on a good day. Everyone should just go to T-Dock or Cove 2 :angelblue:

In my previous non-career as a mediocre not good enough to be a professional skier, my photographer friend used to tell everyone that it rains all the time at Mt Baker and the skiing sucks, so they should just keep going to Whistler. Then his photos started getting published everywhere and nobody believed him. Needless to say the pow days now are too crazy for my curmudgeonly attitude :angry: Feel free to never believe anything I say in the future lol. I'm guessing our dive spots aren't in much danger of being overran with tourists lacking proper buoyancy taking up all the parking and silting up the vis!

My buddy Matt and I finally made it back down for a quick adventure last weekend at Skyline Wall. The vis was a decent 20 ft but the dive was pretty lame. The cucumbers were not out feeding and we found all of zero candy stripe shrimp. It was pretty much a waste of time even bringing the camera. We probably should have just headed down to the T Dock or somewhere better...….
