    Re: Seattle / San Juan Islands Charter

    Since no one complained, the trip is now set to leave from Anacortes

    The skipper wants 10 divers, but will take up to 12 if we don't mind being cozy. Right now we have 10.

    Please post here if you can't make the dive as soon as you know, so your slot can be filled.

    Re: Seattle / San Juan Islands Charter

    We had 6 PNW members enjoy a beautiful day and 2 great dives. The west wall of Long Island is fantastic, one of the best dive sites I have seen. The life and the color on the wall is amazing. Viz was a good 50ft and there was as much to see at 130 ft as there was at 30. Skipper Curt of the Naknek absolutely nailed the slack for this site, we had over an hour and a half to look at all the pretties. The second dive was a drift along some interesting rock structure, that ended in a wall dive. It was getting late so we decided to make this one an hour long.

    We thought that the boat would work well with 2 more rebreather divers. 10 divers would be bumping into each other a lot. With 6 we had plenty of room.

    The Naknek is a RB friendly boat, the crew was helpful when needed and stayed out of the way when not. The only downside was the boarding ladder, it was a bit of a climb to get back on board. Not bad, but I have to say something negative to sound credible.

    The Naknek operates out of Friday Harbor. There are some great dives near there like Turn Point. If there is enough interest in an overnight stay in Friday Harbor after the hotel rates go down in late September, I'll set something up. 4 dives in the heart of the San Juans!

    Any interest?

    Re: Seattle / San Juan Islands Charter

    Thanks again for organizing the day Steve. A couple of great dives.

    I'd be up for another day trip out of Anacortes...that was an easy day even with the run up from Seattle...maybe up for a weekend, maybe.

    Actually I think the ladder was pretty easy given the flat water conditions...nice and long, fin friendly and plenty of strong hand-holds. It would be a major hassle in a sea and/or with more than one stage to deal with. But the boat is perfect for the area.

    Cheers,
    Andrew
