It was a cool cloudy day today at Chemainus. After gearing up I headed out to dock 1 then the small wall, then the deep wall. There was no octo in the den today, so I swam along the deep wall before scootering back. I missed the small wall and ended up scootering back along the deep side, eventually connecting to the small wall right at the tire to dock 2. I scootered dock 2 and 3, then the boom boat before heading to the back of dock 4 and up the crack 'o doom, around the top and back down the crack and over to 2. Then back to 1 and home. Overall a nice dive, if cold underwater.

Another nice day, sunny but cold and some wind. Headed to wolfie who is still under the weather, then back to the right wall. Saw a small Puget Sound king crab. Nice dive.

It was a warmer day and the projected rains held off. After gearing up we headed out for a nice long scooter dive seeing the deep wall and all four docks. My scooter died right at the end of the dive, which turned out to be one battery possibly going bad. Otherwise an excellent dive!

It was extremely cold (-2C) today with snowfall during the past week. We scootered all four dry docks and the boom boat as well as swimming the small reef after heading off the back of dock 2. Overall a nice, if cold dive.

It was cold and rainy today, but the tide was high and waves acceptable. We used scooters to go see newer grandpa and then head to dolphin and saw the small octo as well as a HUGE Puget Sound King Crab! Awesome sight. Newer grandpa was skittish today with me - perhaps he doesn't like the rebreather hoses. Every time I turned my head he'd come out, and as soon as I looked back he'd slide back into his den. The king crab was easily 12" across the shell and really lovely. On the way back I was buzzed by a sleek seal who eyed me but didn't stick around. Overall an awesome first dive of 2024!
