Out again for the Nov BAUE tech charter. This time we went to Ed's Cooper wall. We dropped in at the middle of the wall at about 140ft. From there we headed W to the edge and motored NW for about 10min. We found the nice V shape cayon, where several sponges hang from the walls. From there we headed back SE following the wall from 230ft to about 150ft. There were quite a lot of fish and some very large nudies on the structure. Once at 150ft we headed into the canyon that crosses the wall in half and we spent another 10min having fun and looking at the marine life.

We located the old Wolf eel (named Cooper) at about 120ft and there were tons of blue rock-fish as we moved from 120ft to 80ft where we deployed our SMB.

Visibility was amazing and it was a great dive :-)
