The moon will be full, bathing the reef in a silvery, blue light five fathoms down. We'll stroll into a gentle surf (fingers crossed) and kick out a few yards to the first reef line. Some may wish to kick all the way to the Seatech ledge but there is plenty to see on the trip out, too. Since it is officially lobster season, hunting may begin at any time (make sure you have legally-required equipment and license).
If the conditions are right, this is an excellent first night dive for new or experienced divers. (Rough surf calls for more experience at night.) All divers must have a primary light and a backup light. Personal markers and flag lights are highly-recommended. Anyone wishing to receive credit for this dive as an Advanced Open Water Adventure Dive should make prior arrangements with Tom.
We'll gear up near the restrooms south of the pier. A freshwater shower is available there and parking is only $1.50 per hour.
