Blue Moki Feeding

February 26, 2022

Another dive out front of Dive Wellington with Zachary.


The conditions seemed to be calm enough to give Mermaid's Kitchen West a try. There were many Blue Moki about and they were feeding on the abundant kelp.

We tried venturing further west but Mermaid's Kitchen West is relatively shallow and the surge was stronger than I felt comfortable going into with a new diver by my side. We made our way back east and the surge is very apparent from the movement of these Jellyfish I spotted.


We finished the dive with this Wandering Anenome and playing around with the Blue Cod.
