Deco Profile:
A small group of BAUE divers met up for the BAUE rec. boat. Organized by the one and only "Vanessa Young". We set out and motored around the corner. There was some significant swell, but, we prevailed. The anchor was dropped at the Needle and we all geared up. I dove with Clinton and Mark dove with Vanessa and Massao. We thought it would be a dark dive due to the patchy fog. Once we got down, the whole reef opened up to 65-80ft of vis. Yeeehaaw. The Barnacles are still there. :-( We were able to see a large lingcod and cabezon. Many large patches of hydrocoral.

The second dive was at Outer Pinnacles. I dove with Mark and Massao. The vis held up to about 60ft. Fun antics on the dive!! hehehe... Many jellies on the deco.

Everyone came up with big smiles after every dive.

Mark showed me some of his dance steps of the Cha Cha, the Rhomba and whatever we decided to name the dance.

Great Dive.
