2023-03-17 Diving Higgs Rd Access

A most amazing winter dive off South Pender Island, BC. Suited up on the ocean access platform and once in the water followed a vertical wall towards the East (Mt Baker). Max depth of 70'.
As you will see in the photos, the biodiversity was unbelievable. Surrounding most of the subjects in the photos were often another dozen small, unique and beautiful species.
