Mermaid's Kitchen West Evening Dive

January 29, 2019

My first evening dive in Wellington. Definitely can't be considered a night dive as there was plenty of light out.

It was also fairly windy out (which is normal for Wellington) so there was a considerable swell. The visibility wasn't great. As we ventured west, we went a little too far and the tides breaking against the rocks brought the vis basically down to zero. It was time to turn around at that point.

Between the poor vis and the swell, I only got a few pictures.
