    Visibility was a nice-and-bright 30' or so at the end of the Ogden Point breakwater today. As I swam back towards the second bend, the visibility seemed to drop a bit. At the second corner, visibility was closer to 20'.

    Visibility at Lamb Islet in Becher Bay was a nice 30' this morning. I did a second dive there and the visibility had dropped to 20'. It was much darker (maybe from darker cloud cover) and there seemed to be sediment floating around.

    Up by Nanoose today at Madrona Point, visibility was about 30' near shore. Out farther, away from the waves and surge, I'd say visibility was 60'+. Visibility was about the same at Wall Beach, except for the clouds of moon jellyfish between 30-50' deep.

    A good 50 feet of visibilty at Madrona Point yesterday morning. May have been better had thee not been heavy overcast and some fog.

    About 30 - 40 feet of visibility at Dolphin today. Heavy overcast and light rain certainly made it darker than it would have been had the sun been out.

    Visibility was the typical 15' at Ten Mile Point today. Even though I was diving at noon, it was too dark down on the wall to see where I was going without a light (the weather was heavily overcast and rainy on the surface).
