June 2017 – Dive Report

heatwave
Not much to be said. We started the month off with some windy cold June gloom and transitioned into a heat wave and persistent high surf. Someone said to me, so its been hot – not good for diving? Not necessarily I said. Good for swimming!
Diving locally we have learned quickly that hot weather and sunny skies rarely equal good conditions but usually the opposite. Often due to particles in our nutrient rich waters rays of sunlight tend to bound of these particles causing poorer visibility along with algae blooms feeding off the hot beams of light.  Gray skies with defused sun rays work better out here!
