Hi
I did two weekday scooter+camera dives this week.

1) Skyline -- very silty and dark. The recent rains seems to have done a number here.
2) Flagpole -- had what looks like river runoff in the top 15 feet, as it was very murky and full of floating maple leaves. Viz was ok below but it was very dark. Lots of octos and wolfeels, with both octos and wolfeels on eggs, plus stubby squid eggs. The sponges have deteriorated significantly since last time I was here several years ago.

Both were fun and super easy with the scooter

Sund Rock today, murky above 20ft like usual. Below that was maybe a snotty 15-20ft? Wind/waves/current kicked our butts though. 4 massive GPOs on the south wall, one was on eggs and looked like she was pretty well wasted away at this point.

Saturday 10/24 in Mukilteo at both T Dock and the other park with the pier were 25 to 30+ below 30 fsw. It felt like we were in a Cathedral swimming around the piles with several giant bait balls swarming around getting blasted by Stinky the Seal. I was also at the top of the geodome at one point on dive 2 clearly watching my buddy follow an octo across the bottom.

Cove 2 yesterday had the best viz I've seen there -- we could see the Honey Bear from stem to stern. There was a bit of halocline in the top 10 feet that reduced viz a little, but it was spectacular underneath.

I have not been to Sund Rock. I heard on Boydski you have to contact the Sund Family and pay $15. Is this still the case? Would like to try this site.
