San Carlos March 19-20
We headed out to San Pedro Island on Saturday. On the way there, we saw Fin Back Whales and Mantas. Once we reached San Pedro Island, we dove North Point, and then South Point Drift sites. We ended up at The Rockery to have lunch. The water temperature was in the high 60’s, and even got to 70 degrees depending on your depth. The visibility was about 50 feet on the first dive, and about 30 feet on the second dive. The Sea Lions were extremely playful. There were so many, it was difficult to decide of which to take a picture. Besides the Sea Lions, there was lots of Angelfish and Eels around. This was my first time seeing a Moorish Idol, even though I don’t have a picture to prove it. There was a group of new Open Water certifications completed that day – congratulations to all of you, and welcome to your new scuba family. Others worked on their Advanced Open Water certification.
On Sunday, we dove local sites. We first went to the Sea Mount, followed by San Nicolas, where we also had lunch. The visibility was about 20 feet at the Sea Mount. The current felt strong towards the surface, but you were protected once you reached the Sea Mount. The anchor was at about 35 feet. Some went to the other mounts, while others dove around the first mount. Gary got a great picture of a Sea Horse…they DO exist! Here, we also saw lots of sea life, from big schools of Barracudas to schools of Sargent Majors.
As usual we had some good food on the boat. The crew were excellent at preparing the meals, as well as helpful with getting us in and out of the water.
