Seacrest Park Dive 2

June 19, 2016

After a surface interval that included a walk across the street to get a coffee just to warm up, we headed back into the cove. We did a short surface swim before descending to the line that would lead us through our next dive profile. On that line was this rockfish or maybe it's a stonefish. Either way it had tucked itself by the mooring line of one of the buoys.

Among the kelp you could find nudibranch, if you looked carefully enough. This one was quite large and easy to spot.

By far the highlight of this dive was our encounter with an octopus. I'd like to think it is a junvenile giant pacific octopus (GPO) because encountering a GPO is a bucket list thing for me. Realisitically it's more likely a common red ocotopus. Either way it's always great find a octopus.

Shortly after our run in with the octopus we finished up the dive and headed back to the surface. Cold water diving is cold but it was definitely worthwhile.
