Two dives on the Escapade today, one at a new site, the other at Outer Pinnacles. The water looked very flat in the bay so we were thinking it would be nice further out. As we rounded the corner it did get a bit choppy with the wind but still pretty good conditions. The water on the site was a bit green and as we dropped down it was dark with about 30 or so feet of vis. We headed south to the deeper part of the dive of 165' and slowly circled the huge pinnacle. I love being on the scooter trigger so the size of this dive site was to me fantastic. It just kept on going and going. We past Ben, Erik, and Doug poking around in some barnacles, and John, Clinton, and Matt, scootering in the opposite direction. There was a lot of the barnacles with some clear areas and lots of sheer walls. Not much hydrocoral but the structure was very interesting. At depth there were quite a few lingcods of all sizes. There was a very big school of rockfish at the top of the reef to give us some entertainment which putting up the bag. I had so much fun I could of stayed another 30 mins easily. After surfacing and chowing down on the chicken and brownies we made our way over to the Beach Hopper to make sure they were ok as their engine was not working correctly. After help arrived we made our way over to Outer Pinnacles to our second dive. Since the current was a bit strong we took our scooters again which was the right decision. Zooming down the canyons, whizzing past all the hydrocoral, yeeeeee haaaaawwwww ... another fun dive. I think Dionna was just hoping we would find our way back to the boat, which we did.
