Sue, Beto, Dionna, Mark, Nick and I went out for a nice Easter dive today. Conditions were very flat and we discussed the possibility of heading to Midway Pinnacle, but given the gas mix in our tanks and the fact that it was an hour closer to home, we decided to dive Ed Cooper's wall. This was my first time at the site and it was truly a spectacular dive. The water was cold, dark blue and very clear as we dropped down to the top of the wall. TAhe sponges, schools of bluefish, ling and various rockfish decorating the wall, which stretched out as far as the eye could see, made for a spectacular scooter experience. 20 min into the dive turned in to a chute and gradually ascended the reef to 110', where we began our deco among salp and Scrippsia Pacifica. It's hard to imagine a more beautiful setting in which to appreciate a fine Easter morning!
