Wall'a'Palooza along Ruston

Post by Jeff Pack » Sun Jun 23, 2019 3:29 pm

Jeff and I did Wall'a'Palooza Saturday along Ruston Way doing Lobster Shop Wall, Mofo, Course Marker, and finally Kirbys Wall.

Massive Exchange, we had weird and shifting currents, downwellings, etc. Viz was excellent (For the walls), maybe not the best, but it was up there.

We splashed around the last hour of a big ebb, and 1.5 hours into a big flood.

Jeff saw one octo out in the open but I guess I missed it.

2.5 hours dive, 1 hour deco, max depth was 235.

Overall a really good dive.

Even coming back up (We start at the pooper pipeline cove), current was pushing us into the pilings towards shore.

- I got a good squirt in my mouth
- I would imagine that there would be a large amount of involuntary gagging
- I don't know about you but I'm not into swallowing it
