It was between seasons & very bad visibiltiy yesterday in Monterey Breakwater, only better then last week because of no swell. I barely see my own feet. With only 5 ft visibility, I was hanging out by some rocks and look for critters. Wish the kelp not so distracting here. Beyond close up like this, there was no hope for any picture.

What a nasty day in Monterey ! Weather has been rough early in the week, system came from the North, rain and now Santa Ana from the East. But it was beautiful from home this morning, so I decided to head Monterey after checking the water condition showing a 10 ft swell ! Boy should I have stay home ! It was 1 of the worst sea condition I had seen in BreakWater. It's definitely a 12 ft swell or more and it went in a big cicrle ! Upon decent to 9 ft, I saw only about 1.5 to 2 ft and I was pulling in circles, went further down to 25 ft, same situation. After 25 min drifting in circle and no chance of taking any shot, I decide to go back. As much as I want to dive, I did but wasn't much fun ! Well until next weekend ....
