After about 1 month of teaching I finally got to do a fun dive. Not that teaching is not fun just different kind of fun :-)

Jim, Allison, Ted and myself dove T2 pinnacle out of Yankee Point. Visibility deteriorate from last week epic diving to about 20ft and a little dark at depth, and the red-tide is in full action inside the bay, and rumors are it's also at Lobos.

Jim and I motored north on the main wall and found a nice Rat Fish half way. We hanged around for a couple of minutes as it was pretty friendly one. At the north end we found 5 basket starts, some of them quite large. We were looking for the purple sea fan but no luck this time, maybe it deeper....

On the way up we found several large lingcods and huge school of rock fish at the top of the pinnacle.

SMB deployment was challenging for both team as the bags got entangled with the down-line and also with each others. It was quite a lot of exciting from 70 to 50ft. Better than any class trick I could pull out ;-)

Nice to go fun diving :-)
