After a weekend of exploration at E3 near Point Lobos we moved the boat back up to Local's Ledge for a fun dive. This was to give our support crew a chance to get wet. Also as it was a very flat day it was a rare chance to dive this spot.

I was frustrated early in the dive as I need to get some good hydrocoral footage for my library. Here I was on a flat day at Hydrocoral Central and I couldn't find any suitable hydrocoral for filming! After a bit of swimming I eventually hit paydirt and got some decent footage.

Coming back to the boat we had some fun doing a safety stop next to the 10 foot shallow area. Don't get to see that up close very often! Surge there was pretty crazy but that was half the fun.
