Sund Rock was pretty nasty Saturday 9/29. 3-5ft until you hit 40fsw, then only up to 10-12ft.

Keystone on Saturday afternoon, 9/29. Nice 20+ viz at the Jetty and maybe closing in on 30 at the pilings. Hard to tell though with the massive schools of fish EVERYWHERE!

Saturday 9/15 Sund Rock.

Less than 3ft till 20 ft. Opened to a very hazy 12ft (at best) all the way to 260.

What happened to the epic viz there?

Last Thursday night aug 23rd, Redondo was a beautiful 30 ft below 60 ft deep, and a definite thermocline. Above that, viz was 15 ft, and in the shallows, you could barely see your hands.

Sunrise beach on aug 25th was 25 ft.

Hudson Pt. was terrible on the 20th - 3'.

Of course we were on an ebb, and did not hit slack. Octopus Gardens said they had 30' the week before there, so I'm sure it was operator error

Neah Bay viz was awesome! Anywhere from 15-35+ feet :)

11 dives in 4 days!! And not much smoke out there, I didn't want to come home.
Mushroom Rock was my favorite!!! Excellent viz, Red Goose neck barnacles, and crazy Jellyfish city!

Point Hudson last night... 6-8ft. Kinda like a night dive at 630pm, what with the smoke in the air and goo in the water.
