Catalina Triopha (Triopha catalinae) on Valecitos Pt.
Location: La Jolla Shores
Time in: 9:30 am
Time under: 57 min
Max depth: 86 ft
Ave temp: 55 F
Vis: 15-20 ft at depth
Waves: 2-3 ft, somewhat challenging
Buddies: Erin, Steve & Mike H.
Highlights: Beautiful day, good visibility at depth. My first clingfish.
Juvenile clingfish on a sea hare.
Had a nice dive with Erin, Steve and Mike. Mike found a tiny juvenile clingfish amongst the scattered dead market squid. I was also hoping to find the mantis shrimp below Valecitos point, but alas, didn't find any in our short time at 80 ft. My air was running low, so we quickly looked and didn't find any holes.
