Double Shore Dives (Windy Point, Ship Rock)

A male and female laying eggs:
Shy octopus:

Puffer fish! Football sized.

Mama catfish!

These rays we disturbed were about 8 feet long... enormous! You get a sense of their size by how sluggish the takeoff is:

There is so much life at ship rock.

I was at the base of the wall, zoning in on some catfish hordes, when a Numb Ray swam at me. Andrew tugs my shoulder to get my attention refocused on the ray, which can deliver shocks of 30A at 200V (6kW!). Check out the vid. It seemed to be seeking me out.
