Description

There were about 50, all adults, aggregated in this wide open channel on a rising tide with moderate onshore winds but swell below half a metre. Mediocre to poor visibility between sets. Maximum horizontal visibility about 4 metres. Still an interesting (and easy access) shore based snorkel. (As an aside, One usually sees banded as well as sea sweep at this location but on this day I saw only a few immature sea sweep. )
