    it was nice calm dive at Point Lobos today, cove was really murky, but it opened up outside the cove. I'd say 30FT maybe a bit more... really nice conditions today

    Got out to Breakwater and Metridium Fields yesterday. Vis at B-water was best around 35ft deep seeing 15ft... MAYBE... the rest of the dive saw 8 to 10. Light surge in the AM. Always fun to check out the critters on the wall. Saw some big Scallops, etc. etc.
    Metridium saw 5-10 ft. vis with some octopus along the pipe and lots of nettles above us while at 50ft. deep. Quite murky.
    Went back to breakwater in the afternoon and the long period swell had come up a bit, as forecast, and offered up some good surge. I counted around 13-15 second periods. Vis had dropped a lot from the first dive of the day, 8ft at 35ft deep. NOAA has this to say for the next week:

    Marine Point Forecast for Latitude 36.61°N and Longitude 121.88°W

    Peace.

    Sunday at Wharf: horrible viz. Maybe 4ft. Lost track of my buddy at one point. Hooded nudibranchs on almost every piece of kelp and sea grass we came across. We ended up skimming the sand and the way back and came across 4 small electric rays.
