(webstagram) Another shot from yesterday’s dive. At first I didn’t even see this cabezon, I just wanted to take some photos of the red algae. Then a few frames in I noticed the dorsal spines of this sculpin right in front of me. How kind of this caby to be such a patient model, but I think we both knew the lighting would be worth it.

(webstagram) A weekend full of subsurface Monterey therapy must’ve been needed cause I logged my longest dive yet today. 90 min later and I wasn’t even cold!

(webstagram) Had a great impromptu trip this weekend to the UC Big Creek Reserve for some diving but the moonless night sky on Saturday night really stole the show. Last time I was here was 2015 and the area was just as beautiful as I remembered. Thanks to @cameronsilber for helping me with the lighting in the first shot.

(webstagram) Back home from an amazing 2 weeks in the British Columbia and the San Juan Islands. Having @stephaniebwilson onboard was a special treat as we spent our time surrounded by jellyfish and beautiful landscapes. Nice to spend some time with some special people in a special part of the world.

(webstagram) “Will you still love me when I’m 164?” My first time seeing an adult yelloweye rockfish the other day. One of my favorite rockfish because of their longevity. Learning that these rockfish can reach 150 years old can completely shatter perceptions people have about fish.

(webstagram) A silverspotted sculpin poking its head out of some kelp under a wharf here in British Columbia. Neither @katiemillsorcutt or I had ever seen this beautiful little fish and it was definitely a treat on a beautiful dive.

(webstagram) Halfway done with my 2 weeks in British Columbia already and it has been amazing. Especially the jellyfish, which are why I’m here and what I’ve been so excited for. Being in the water surrounded by thousands upon thousands of moon jellies in unbelievable and indescribable.

(webstagram) British Columbia has been stunning, especially below the surface, this past week. Yesterday's dive featured some fantastic natural light and great visibility. Views like this are good reason why I think BC offers some of the best cold water diving in the world.
