Redondo last night was pretty decent--you can kind of see around the long snot strings which makes it not too bad (around 10-15' or so at 80 ft.) Dragged my husband on his first *twilight* dive last night. Saw some sand lance,tube fish, and a (rather large!) sea cucumber. Sweet!! I just wish there were more hours in the day...

Oh, I was in the water that August day, with Bob. We did Three Tree. The viz was INSANE. At 75 feet, we were watching the sunlight dance on the pebbles on the bottom. You could see forever. I'll never forget that dive, or the one I did a few weeks back in Cove 2, where the viz was darned near that good. It's AMAZING how your perception of a place is permanently changed, when you can actually see all of it!

Three Tree North, 8-22-08, large snot globules in the 10 to 25 fsw range, but it was easily 30 ft. or more of viz below 40 ft. Hopefully the "snot globules" portend some even better viz soon. The best viz I ever saw here was a movie that was playing at TLSea that was purportedly shot in August a couple of years ago - viz was at least 70 ft - looked downright tropical!

Hey NWbrewer! I assume you were the diver with the pickup parked facing the Silver Cloud.

The guy with the spool was my buddy Rob. I was the slightly heftier guy. He knotted it up but probably needs to replace the line. It was strange that it broke since it was only the 4th time he's used it.

Next time you see us drop by and we'll buy you a beer at the Knot. :occasion5:

We were also at the Muk last night and as NWBREWER said, the vis was in the 20'ft range. Great dive until the end when we were almost creamed by some yahoo's in a fishing boat who wanted to check out what the big orange marker was that suddenly appeared out of nowhere. :dontknow:

Redondo last night . . . Weird viz; great in the very shallow water, moderate in the middle, better at depth. The crud is aggregating into whale snot again -- I suspect the viz this weekend may be fantastic.

Viz Reports Thread

Well, since the other thread got put in the planning section (which it technically could be) I'm starting a new Viz Reports thread in the Trip Reports section as well.

Please post your viz reports!!

Sund Rock 20 - 30 ft. today. Best I've seen all year! \:D/
