Verdes is going to be busy tomorrow and can't dive, so we decided to try a night dive. Drove down to Tower 15 to dive the Little Coral Knoll just as the sun was setting. We swam out to the swim buoy with plenty of light and descended to the Large Rock then headed 150 degrees to the Little Coral Knoll except that we never made it.
I got this shot of a Smooth Trunkfish at the Big Rock,
as well as this shot of a Sharpnose Puffer. I found the Moray Eel in the rock, but could not coax it out to get a pictures.
Found a Scrawled Cowfish who was captivated by the Ikelite Strobe and let me get some good head on shots. I imagine that shortly after this experience, he founded his own fish religion.
We both got cold and Verdes got low on air, so we surfaced and found we were off Sunrise, much too far South. We swam back on the surface, which took longer than I had expected. Still, it was fun.
