Another video shot with a Canon Powershot A570 in a Canon housing with a HID UK Light Cannon and edited with IMovie.
It is really amazing to see so many lingcod in such a small area. I don't know whether it is a seasonal event or that amount of fish live there year around. During our dives we also counted at least four Giant Pacific Octopi but unfortunately they were all tucked inside their dens and did not want to get filmed.
In such a wonderful place visibility can be a real challenge and very frustrating. Silt dumped into the ocean by nearby rivers in fall and spring and plankton bloom in summer effect the water clarity so cold dry winter days may offer the best visibility. However the kelp would be gone by then and so that amount of fish too?
Keystone Underwater Park is a shallow dive. Maximum depths are in the 50s ft range depending on the tide but current can be strong and drag a diver away from the jetty into the Coupeville-Port Townsend Ferry 'water lane'.
