#354 - #357: Hood Canal

I've been just swamped lately trying to keep up with work, in addition to making some huge updates to PlanYourDive.com. Here are four dives I did last weekend when we were out in the Hoodsport area. I saw two HUGE giant pacific octos out in the open and got some decent video of them. Vis was pretty bad, but they were still great dives.

#346: KVI Towers Mar 6 2009



What can I say? Another great, albeit shorter, dive at KVI!

Anemone stalks

California Sea Cucumber

Hermit crab


Here's a little video montage of the dive, plus a really cool bait ball in the marina.

#345: KVI Towers Mar 6 2009



Our plan was to go to China Wall today, but a bad oil pressure sensor limited us to 8 knots. KVI was close, and it's a great site, so we did two dives there instead. Vis was great down to 100 fsw, with plenty of ambient light and virtually no current.

#344: Redondo, Feb 27 2009



Tami's gloves and suit got wet somehow, so rather than tough it out she decided to bail. She's kind of a princess that way. =)

Marty and I checked out the observation pipe and nearby boat, then headed north at around 60 fsw very slowly. After a while, I headed NE, and we ran into the eagle statue, then continued on to the VW. We picked up the pace a little at that point, and headed back to the pier so we could meet the girls for dinner at the Thai place up the hill.

Here's a few of the critters we ran into:

Giant Pacific Octopus (under boat near tube)

Frosted Nudibranch

Pacific Prawn

Small Giant Pacific Octopus

Roughback Sculpin with brain-sucking parasites =)

Stubby Squid

Sparkling Shrimp

Flounder

Shag-Rug Nudibranchs
