Deco Profile:
John and I got in two nice dives in Whaler's Cove after a long holiday layoff. We managed to survey all 4 nudibranch transects and had still had time left to take some pictures.

The first dive was spent on the 4 transects and despite the recent storms there was no shortage of slugs to be counted. We even managed to find 3 Flabellina trilineata which have been rare on the transects.

Conditions were actually nicer shallow near the launch ramp so for the second dive we decided that we would stay in shallow water. Despite some surge we found lots of slugs to photograph. Then, to top off a nice day, a small ratfish came to visit us for a few minutes at the end of the dive

Pictures here.
