|Saturday I was invited to dive with the Kitties on-board of Phil's boat :-). The target site was a nice canyon that crosses Ed's wall half way. Sue and I have seen the canyon a few times and it promises to be a good dive.|
We dropped down to about 170ft and headed NW on the wall. The high-light was a nice basket star that Robert found and a few large nudibranches. After about 15min we headed up to 130ft and motored back towards the starting point while looking at rock-crabs and some very nice tree fishes under a small overhang.
We finally located the canyon and crossed it over. At about 120ft Allison located another nice tree fish, this time in the open, and near it there was a crack with two wolf-eels on it. One large one small. While looking at the creatures we were located but a large school of rock-fish that was swimming around us.
After about 30min we headed up the top of the pinnacle at 70ft and drifted our deco.
We had lunch at Sam's with most of the buffet ending in Robert's plate ;-)
Here are some pictures from the dive
