The Lois Ann is a very diver friendly operation.

Dive Journal: After our surface interval, the Lois Ann takes us just a bit north of the previous site, still off North Island. As we enter the water and descend, I notice for the first time the shimmering of a thermocline in the water - pretty cool.

I wanted to see garibaldi fish and I was not disappointed. There are tons of them on this dive. Myron and Mercedes separate from us and later come back with reports of playing with a baby sea lion. Meanwhile, Linda and I discover a moray eel and examine him for a while. Linda exited early from this dive. She later claimed it was because she had to pee, but that her wet suit was so tight that it was impossible.
