Deco Profile:
BAUE tech charter on Sunday. Plan A was to head to Big Sur for a Mid-way pinnacle dive but the swells and winds were a little too bad for that. We settled for a dive at K2 main wall. I have not done this dive in a while and I forgotten one
amazing this wall is. It run for about 400ft NW direction and there are a series of nice pinnacle at the north end in the 200ft range. There are usually large school of juv rock fish and people had been seeing a GPO in that area. We didn't see
the GPO but we had a nice time with 40-50ft vis and really nice clean water. We saw several very large lingcods resting on the wall small ledges, and they were very territorial. There was a large school of rock-fish at the shallow 80ft peak and several sheep heads swimming around. During deco we saw 8 inches long fish hiding inside a jelly. It was really cute.
