I am still alive, during my absence I have moved to Whidbey Island. Going from Hawaii to here will be a totally different world. Does anybody have any experience diving off Whidbey Island? Would love to chat with some people who are familiar with the area if inclined. The idea of diving here really excites me however the current can be far more extreme than what I am equipped to deal with in normal circumstances. The cold water, the lack of visibility and unknown locations.

I would appreciate any help that could be provided, perhaps a possible dive buddy would be nice too if willing/able.
