    Quite nice at McKenzie Bight (Saanich Inlet) today despite the dark, overcast weather. From the shallows down to over 100' deep, visibility was 40-50'.

    At Descanso Bay (Gabriola Island) today, visibility was maybe 2' in the shallows (I could barely see my hand when I held it out) and a dark 30' below 15' deep.

    Recent wind storms have stirred things up a bit, but visibilty is still okay. Went from about 50 feet at Tyee, down to about 20 feet. Dolphin had excellent visibilty prior to the wind storm, but don't know what it is like now. Lots of runoff from the Englishman River and surrounding streams may have played some havoc with Madrona Point - will check that out later this week.

    Dove at Oak Leaf yesterday - visibility was 40 - 50 feet.

    Dove at Madrona Point this morning - visibility was 30 - 40 feet.

    Both sites the visibility got better as we went deeper.

    Happy New Year everyone, and safe diving in 2019 !! :cheers:

    Dove Chemanus today (dry docks). Vis was about 20ft for once. Been far too many "5ft or less" days there.

    Very good visibility at Tyee this morning, despite all the rain and wind we have experienced over the last couple of days. Estimating about 40 feet of vis at depth, but even the shallows were good. First dive with my new DC2000 camera outfit - can't wait to see the results !!
