Hit the afternoon high tide at Redondo today and visibility was an amazing 20-30 feet from about 25-70 feet deep. It actually was a little worse from 70-90 depth, but still a solid 10-15 feet

Sund Rock 8/11 at 10am - at least 15ft! At 60ft still had no use for flashlight. Billions of tiny shrimp-like creatures were the only thing that clouded the waters but only in a certain location.

Viz @ Redondo...@ noonish, 25ft
It always amazes me to be "reminded" of how a dive site looks and the "Oh, I forgot about that!" till viz is clear!

C2 - Sunday AM 0700, high tide, and almost empty parking lot. Fairly epic! Maybe 30'+ down to below the logs, then got a bit cloudier as we got deeper. Still had daylight down to 145+'. Also seemed to be agreeable with the Lion's Manes, had three really large jellies between the deep logs and the bottom of the I-beams.

8/3 alki junkyard, high tide. Great viz! 20+

Slack was around 8am, so it was running later than predicted at admiralty, in case you want to go tomorrow. Lots of sea pens, flounders, perch and tubesnouts in the shallows. My buddies saw the Wolfie and an octo at depth.

ThThTh 8/1 Three Tree point, high tide. EPIC viz! I could see the whole length of the golf ball boat, from about a boat length distance away. Viz declined as the tide started ebbing.

Keystone on Friday 7/26 after work was a little dirty but still 15 to 20 ft at depth. The shallows and pilings were very nice with the sun streaming down and schools of fish swimming around. Probably the nicest conditions I've seen out there all year!

7/27 Cove 2, bottom of ebb tide. Maybe 5-8' viz all the way down to 75', then opened up to maybe 10-15' at the logs. With the overcast, even Honey Bear was a bit on the dark side.

Really murky at Redondo tonight. Visibility was a couple of feet until it opened up at 60 feet — to 5 feet or so.

Still had a good time diving in the bottle field.

Hi Calvin. Depends on where I click. Clicking the title takes me to the first post. Clicking the red page icon takes me to the last page. Clicking the date takes me to the last post. This is on mobile web.

Can you guys please let me know, are you seeing this Vis reports thread in the right order; is it taking you to the newest vis report at the end of all the past ones, or are you starting at the oldest Tom Nic post? Trying to get this set right. Sorry for the confusion if it's not displaying as intended.

Deception Pass viz yesterday was awful. There was a west wind blowing thru the pass, stirring up silt and sand and kelp into the channel. Good to know that west wind will likely equal poor viz in the future!
Were conditions as bad as the cancelled dive 4/27/19? Waves were 2'+ by the time we left. Getting out was extremely difficult for a few folks. Easy to get knocked down. Very hard to get back up as the wave period was very short.

Wind + water in the same direction > flattens the water; entry conditions. Doesn't look too bad but it could be bad later, especially if the wind comes up more.
Wind + water opposite direction > much larger waves; exit conditions :eek:

vis on the beams (at cove 2) today was EPIC!!!!! Even in the shallows (on the low tide) it was pleasant 10-15. beneath ~35-40' it was breathtaking. it wasn't that winter teal 80' we've seen now and then but its some of the better late spring vis I've seen in years.
