Deception Pass-Mothers Day weekend warm up report

Post by Sharkb8 » Wed May 15, 2019 7:57 pm

Last Sunday I got to join in on some fun at Deception Pass. I've had one mediocre boat dive there on the south side of Pass Island a couple years ago but only recently felt like I could possibly handle shore diving from the beach. Thanks to Yelloweye's awesome dive briefing (serious thanks!!!) my friend Cara and I had probably the best cold water dive I've ever experienced. The currents were cooperative, the vis was good and the company was better. Can't wait to see the report and photos from the rest of you!

Very nice pics, the Pass is the place to find colors galore, definitely my favorite site on Whidbey Island. It was good to meet you and your friend Cara on Sunday.

I love the vibrant pinks, oranges, and yellows! The nudis laying eggs is exquisite. I like the segments on the crab at the base of the glove sponge. The tiny scale crab floating in the water column is charming. I feel fortunate and thankful to experience the underwater world, and I appreciate all the beauty each of you capture! :joshsmith: :partydance: :)
