Conditions report in Resurrection Bay

Last weekends dive revealed what we believe to be the tail-end of the May plankton bloom. We had a measly 10 feet of visibility from the surface to 60 fsw, with the vis clearing to about 15 ft below that. This is pretty typical for spring, and we can expect the visibility to gradually improve as the summer season rolls on. Keep in mind this is “in the bay” at the Shackle which is not necessarily known for great vis. Next week we’ll be diving at least a dozen sites in Elderado Narrows, and expect visibility to improve as we get closer to the gulf of Alaska. We’ll be sure to update this blog when we get back from our week long trip with “North 60” BSAC scuba club.
