Night dive on 8/26/2017 @ Sunrise Motel Hoodsport Washington, Puget Soun...



Lots of cools stuff to see, however the algae bloom came out at night so the visibility wasn't the best. This video is not edited, just one long 30 minute dive. Watch while listening to some tunes!

We did see a dogfish. I only got a quick second of it on the video.

Open Water Certification Dives at Sunrise Motel, Puget Sound, for Ian an...



Visibility wasn't the greatest this weekend but there was a nice selection of animals to see. It's always fun to see anemones and hermit crabs. With the low vis, we couldn't find the deep boats, but I know they're still there.

Fun dive day under the waterfall at Dugan Falls, Washougal, Washington



Dugan Falls are located in Washougal, Washington about 30 minutes East of Vancouver. The water coming down the falls slows down enough by the first week in August so it's a great time to head up there and take a dip. The water is usually about 61-63 degrees and the pool under the fall gets to about 18ft deep. Every year we see a school of Steelhead Trout. This year there were about 40 of them and they were about 30 inches long.

Pleuroncodes planipes, red crab, a species of squat lobster, raving to A...



This footage is not a loop... the original video is over 10 minutes long. Try to watch the whole thing if you can. It's quite mesmerizing!

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pleuroncodes_planipes

Pleuroncodes planipes, sometimes called the pelagic red crab (or simply "red crab"), tuna crab or langostilla, is a species of squat lobster from the eastern Pacific Ocean.

The crabs are about 4 inches long, have three small legs on each side of their bodies and two pincers in front, much like a miniature lobster. Their tails are segmented, causing them to swim backward.

Audio is: Axel Thesleff, "Bad Karma"
