Greg Dunn and I met up at Pt Lobos for a leisurely tech 1 dive. The Cove was really flat and the tides were perfect for lugging gear in and out of the water.. Thanks to Doc Wong we were able to get in on his reservation.
The orginal plan was to go out to The Road and Shortcut Reef, but, I heard that the vis was questionable and it was really dark. Greg and I both decided to stay a little closer and explore the area around the deeper part of Beto's Reef and some parts out near the deeper Sister. It was really nice to find several large colorful Hermissendas and a Triopha Catalinae. We also saw a Tritonia Festiva eating off the trunk of a Gorgonian. We headed back in for a relaxing deco on the shallow reefs and in the kelp.
After a 2 hour Surface Interval we toured an out of town guest from Hollywood Divers. He had a rather large video that didn't seem to work as well as he wanted... Nevertheless, He got to see the area near the Lone Metridium.. It was like a night dive at times. Vis was around 20-25. Water temps are warm.
