seawater, 11°C (bottom)

shore dive


First of two dives with Vancouver's Diving Locker "saturday drop in dive".

Close to zero visibility in top 3 meters (freshwater runoff), then good visibility (but dark) below. Lots of Rockfish, Lingcod, huge plumose anemones..

7mm wetsuit plus 7mm ice vest was fine for the first ~25 minutes of the dive, then started to feel cold. Most others were in drysuits.

Diving togeter with Klaus N., took a few interesting pictures, but hard because the flash illuminated mainly particles.
