|Yesterday we had one of those incredible winter diving days. The weather forecast was a little sketchy but we pushed thorough and were able to anchor at K2. |
As we hit the water and started our descend we could see the bottom at 130 half-way through our descend. We followed the down-line to the top of the pinnacle and from there headed North parallel to the main K2 wall. We could easy see from K2 to K1 which is about 100ft on the map, so visibility was subreal. The bottom at 220 have a series of inviting ripples and we motored around some of the main structure on the north.
Dionna's team found 3 rat fish on the south end and we all meet at the top of the pinnacle to see the huge school of rock-fish and others creatures.
Second dive was a Local Ledge with again amazing vis and great surge action to watch.
Epic diving in winter! If you can, go diving while this last.
