I did a dive here a couple of months ago (early Aug. 2019) and noticed several feather stars that weren't here before. This was in an area about 100' deep. I took video on that dive so I don't have any pictures, but this relatively-new abundance of feather stars at Henderson Point was surprising. For several years, I had only seen 1 feather star at Henderson Point and even that seemed unusual for Saanich Inlet. I wanted to take some photos of the feather stars so I came out for another dive on Sept. 29, 2019. Unfortunately, visibility this time was pretty terrible. I had a hard time navigating the maze of reefs when I could only see less than 10' in front of me. I ended up just following my compass out towards the deeper dropoff. I reached the deeper area and saw several feather stars between 70-80' deep. Visibility down here had improved to around 40', but it was pretty dark. I went deeper (down to around 110' deep), but didn't see any feather stars below 80' deep. This was a different area that the spot I visited last time. Anyway, this new population of feather stars almost makes the place look Nanaimo-ish. They're still pretty small, but it will be interesting to see if they continue to grow in size and abundance.
As I swam back up to the shallows, the visibility was too bad to bother taking many wide-angle photos so I took a bunch of close-up photos instead.
