Dove the deep blue yesterday. A couple of miles off of Dana Point, California we headed west until we found blue water and dangled some lines. Top 40' had well over 40' vis. Below 80' had well over 40' vis. In between 10' -15'. The top was dead calm, very little current, below 80' a ripping, almost to hard to swim against current. Lots cool pelagic drifters. At the end of a dive, MzLinda spotted a Mola Mola circling under the boat. This is the coolest diving happening right now. All these pelagic drifters are here trying to clean up the plankton bloom.

Focus, lighting and stability is definately a challange.

For a taste of the blue, check out my quick video

Very nice video! I have been doing "Blue Water" diving for a few years now and have been kicking around the idea of switching to video, for the very reason of showing the movement of these creatures! Seeing your video just fuels that desire! Thanks for sharing.
