Very few people around, and no other divers in the water! We saw several Pale Octopuses out at Elsa's Reef, and hiding in bricks on the way out to the reef. There were also a few Mosaic Leatherjackets that seemed to be standing sentry duty on the star pickets that mark the way to the reef from the pier.

There were several Spider Crabs passing through, heading East. No aggregations though. We also spotted some squid, a couple of Barber Perch, several Magpie Perch, a Big Bellied Seahorse and a Sweet Ceratasoma nudibranch, along with lots of Goatfish and Leatherjackets.

The new (for us) steps on the pier made getting into and out of the water very easy.
