It's amazing how fast conditions can change in Central California. A week ago the vis was barely 3-5 feet. It looked more like Hawaii Saturday. Really amazing blue water.

Likewise wow! Great photos - that looks like wonderful diving.  Always nice to see some temperate water wide angle shots.  I lugged my gear up to California last year and drove over to Monterey from the valley on my day off to find a calm sea and 3ft viz, so I can appreciate how special this was! 


I'll be up again in about 10 days so am looking for some advice on where to go.  Rather than hijack your thread I'll start another one.


Cheers & well done
