Dive Day

Swift Pacific Adventure

 

We awoke before sunrise to a sudden change in wind and Swell direction at the Isthmus.  The motion of the ST47 swung around to rolling swells from the North and a strong breeze.  This crushed our plans for our photo shoot and diving video shoot against the cliffs at Emerald Bay, which was now awash with breaking waves.  We watched as families dropped their moorings early after a rough night at Two Harbors and headed back to the mainland.  We decided to head in and hike to the West to scout out a good dive spot, while the ST47 rode confidently on the hook in the harbor.  We were looking for a calm cove with access to the kelp fields where Doc White could dive and photograph the sea life. We found a headland west of our anchorage that was protected from the blowing northerly and then returned to the boat to lift anchor and     head to our new anchorage.    Before departing we opened the engine room hatch to check fluids and give a visual inspection.  All systems were in order. Upon arrival at our new location, we realized that this was the perfect spot for our underwater diving shoot.  The dive team (Doc and Demi)  and videographers were pleased with the ST47's submersible swim platform making it a breeze to dive from the boat.  After three days with 7 people aboard, we are at 63% fresh water capacity.  We are finding the standard tankage sufficient.  The crew enjoyed a cocktail on the fly bridge at sunset and discussed today's diving experience before heading in to the Harbor Reef restaurant for our final dinner of this leg.  We plan to rise at 5am for a run to Avalon for a drone shoot off of Descanso beach at sunrise.  Good night from the grateful crew of the #SwiftPacificAdventure
