Kevin & I dove together on the Escapade twilight & night dives. The more spectacular of the 2 dives was the night dive on Shale Island.

We descended to Jim's anchor placement, just to the west of the giant Navy anchor which resides on the island. We began our circumnavigation swimming towards the west:

The water was clean, and there was very little surge, so we were able to focus on the noctural behaviors of the island's residents.
