A bunch of us wound up on the Escapade on Sat. for a recreational trip. Hopes were high as we rounded the corner and pretty soon we were steaming toward Lobos Rocks. Unfortunately, as we arrived, the long-period swell was pounding the rocks pretty impressively, so we decided to relocate to nearby Soberanes Wall.

This was my first time here, so as we dropped, I did my best to get my bearings in the 5-10' viz. We slowly worked our way around the pinnacle a couple times before heading up. Highlights of the dive were a large (18"?) Treefish, as well as some kind of yellow mollusk that we haven't seen before (almost like a snail/nudibranch hybrid).

For our second dive, we headed back up to Carmel to find some shelter at Outer Pinnacles. We dropped onto a spot that we've been to several times before, so we quickly headed over to my favourite hydrocoral spot for some pictures. Was happy to find that both the scooter and the camera housing stayed water-tight on this outting after some service to both. After that, Allison forced me to go zooming around the area in between tight canyons and cut-throughs :-)

Was great to get back in the local waters. Just a few pictures here.
