|Susan and I went on Phil's boat today. Conditions were a bit rough, with large swell and forecast winds for the afternoon so we decided to stay away from shore and Susan motored the boat towards the Mt. Chamberlin area. I dove K2 last weekend so we decided to try the sister pinnacle K1. We dropped the hook, |
did our check and jumped into the water to find a very strong current coming from the south. We scooters against it and after a while we made it to the peak and then down the wall.
The best part of the dive was a free swimming wolf eel that I almost put my hand on top of it before I realize it was there. The red gorgonias patches at about 150ft were spectacular.
The weather got much worst for the afternoon so we were happy to squeeze one dive before the worst part of the storm hit the area.
Ready to be dry and warm for the weekend :-)
