Allison, Matt and I snuck a dive in on Phil's RIB on Friday. It had been dead flat all week, but as soon as we pulled the boat off of the trailer it was clear that there was bit of swell coming in and breaking around the mouth of the cove.

We did some parking-lot juggling of GPS numbers and set out to peek at Yankee Pt. We motored out there fairly smoothly and deployed at Mt. Chamberlin into a very light current in short order.

It was clear as soon as we dropped that it was going to be really nice; the water was totally clear and blue. At around 60', the reef at 130' came into sight (oh yeah!) beneath a huge school of several hundred blues. We hit the bottom on the south-side of the pinnacle and did a slow counter-clockwise circle working our way north and upcurrent.

There was a noticeable current at depth, but it was really clear and the huge school of blues followed us around pretty much the whole dive. At the 35min. mark, we begrudgingly began our ascent and worked our way up the North side of K2 until we left the structure around 80-90' Deco was uneventful, though we surfaced into a thick fog which had settled in during our dive. Definitely reassuring to hear Phil motoring around our bag on our hang :-)

We motored back in the fog to find a small pod of dolphins playing around inside Whaler's Cove.

Some pics here (and a few from the next day at Lobos):
