Redondo was easily 30ft horizontal yesterday (9/16). Vertical vis was 40+.
We found thee red octos at various places along the deep line, plus a friendly juvenile wolfie. Lots of gunnels and gobies about. The amount of light still available on the bottom was amazing, even at 80 fsw.

Both the first and second dive at Three Tree today I was able to see the surface from 55ft down. Obviously less when looking to the side, but still pretty darn good.

Saturday Sund Rock, clear to 25ft, less than 10ft to 30ft, then a nice 20+ all the way to 235.
Sunday Lake Wa (Leschi wall) good viz to 170, and then around 2ft afterwards. Meh.

Broken Point West and James Island North were maybe 3'. Yep. That's three. Tons of life. More tons of brown particulate in the water. And THE happiest Orange Sea Cucumbers I have ever seen. Thousands....

8-29 O'neil Island and Bare Island in the San Juans were 10-25, still a top layer of murky water above 30 fsw. Not bad, however.
