Deco Profile:
This weekend forecast was terrible and it looked like we were going to have cancel both tech diving day. Saturday there were very large swells and strong winds so the day got cancelled. Saturday night the winds dropped down quite a lot and the swells went down about 6ft, so we were able to get out on Sunday. With 6-8ft swells we made it to K1 and deployed the teams: Jim, Susan and Beto, Clinton and Ted, and Doug and Eric.

The down-line was at 80ft on the top of the pinnacle and we motored NW and down the wall. At the north end we found some very large lingcods, several large basket stars, some cute little octopies on the sand. We located a large overhand and we spend time going in and out of it. At 150ft we encountered a large ball of juv. rock-fish and we took turns scootering into them. Way cool!

The shallow area of the pinnacle has some really cool walls and tons of rock-fish at the top of the pinnacle.

During deco we had tons of jellies and some several little pompano fish inside some brown jellies.

All in all great to go diving!
