God's Pocket October October 13-19

Post by dphershman » Sun Nov 03, 2019 3:10 pm

After many years of reading about everyone's adventures at Gods Pocket I finally had the opportunity to go. An amazing dive site, complete with Humpbacks circling right off the dock plus Sea Otters floating idly offshore. The only negative was that we got slammed by some severe weather... heavy rains most days and gale force winds a couple of times as well. Still, we managed to get most of the 'must-see' dive sites. Plus I got to see a Rock Greenling, a first for me.

Here are some photos... just a sampler of what we saw there.

The Hooded Nudibranchs were everywhere!

Orange Peel nudibranchs were plentiful and quite large

Thanks! I owe Captain Al for Rocky due to his precise descriptions of the environment where they could be found :)
