Dive Log & Friday Creature Feature!

Posted on December 12, 2014 at 1:45 PM

We had to cancel our Wednesday dive this week due to weather, or rather the lack of motivation caused by the weather, but I did have two lovely dives at Moulds Bay last weekend so I haven't dried up quite yet. Jer and I went over to Quadra for a "Divemasters Only!" dive (because no one else wanted to come) and we had several missions while we were there:

1. Find the lost computer that supposedly was there somewhere

2. Find Jer's flashlight that he had lost back during the summer 

The computer didn't surface on account of it not even being there afterall, but Jer did miraculously find is tiny black flashlight. If that's not a good omen at the beginning of a dive then I don't know what is. To be honest I wasn't even looking for it, I had no faith in its safe return so I was looking for more interesting things. And a few interesting things we did find! 

This Fried Egg Jelly, the biggest I've ever seen, was about 2 ft in diameter! At first it looked like it had collided with the reef and gotten itself stuck, actually it was being eaten by a very clever little anemone. What a friggin' feast. It contracted it's huge egg bell trying to escape but it just wasn't strong enough. I assumed that something that big would have to be quite old but wikipedia tells me that jellyfish don't live very long at all, some don't even get a whole year to float around the open seas. 

Now, I have a love-hate relationship with jellies because I have experienced the great wrath of their sting first hand so I'm pretty cautious of them. I was very pleased to read that these monsterous breakfast wannabes don't carry much of a sting and infact act as a shelter and food source for much smaller creatures. They're nice friendly jellies. 

We also saw this hairy little guy, what's his deal???
