Divers having fun

We had a busy weekend with scuba diving tours both Saturday and Sunday. Our Saturday tour featured two local divers plus a third diver from the United Kingdom. We also had our newest  Divemaster, David Sisson, assisting. On Sunday our tour had another 3 divers, two from Lindblad Expeditions who were on break before heading back to Alaska to lead adventure tours.

Both days we were at Redondo Beach just south of Seattle. We had excellent conditions with partly sunny skies and comfortable temperatures. Currents were very mild this weekend and we were able to time our dives for perfect slack conditions. Divemaster Brian Hull made his special chocolate brownies for our surface interval snack.

Our scuba divers were treated to sightings of both a Giant pacific octopus in it’s den, and also a smaller Red octopus out hunting in the open. Divers also saw lots of Copper rockfish, a Crescent gunnel, a Wolf eel, and lots of other fish & invertebrates. A great weekend of diving, now we are ready to head into the week with even more scuba diving tours in the Pacific Northwest.
