We probably won’t make it too deep with our 7mm wetsuits and hooded vests. This is the test to see if we have to spend lots more money on gear. Ha ha.
And while you're at it, don't forget to do a couple of dives right there at Mike's Beach. It's not pristine, but you'll find cool Hood Canal life to look at, and can have a great few dives just getting wet!
Enjoy, and let us know how it went!
That was incredible! Considering our checkout dives were at Battleground Lake. We made two 80’ dives and saw lots of life. My son (with zero body fat) got a little cold. I did ok. We were in 7mm wetsuits with hooded vests.
