The Seabase water temperatures, having been cooler than last year, is warming up already. But, the visibility is quite good in both Habitat Bay and Whiterocks Bay. We haven't had as many strong cold winds recently, and all of the rain and snow from the last few days might have added water to the aquafer, pushing it up in the springs..who knows, but we like it. And, the water is quite clear, so it is a good time to check your underwater cameras and dry suits...!
The fish that don't happen to be tuned into staying in the warm spaces are suffering-we have had some casualties -mostly the monos, but a few others. We are in mourning for the fish-or at least are very sad- , and hoping for an end to the drought and the cold. There are sstill thousands of live fish, but -we hate to lose any.
Special Note to Guests: mornings are better vis, partly because the bottom does not get kicked up, and the sun is more direct...
