This is another random spot in Saanich Inlet that doesn't have a name on a map so I had to make one up to tell it apart from the others. It's right across the Inlet from Elbow Point (Repulse Rock/White Lady). I picked it as I was motoring past in my zodiac because there was a gravel beach, making it easy to get ashore (most of this part of Saanich Inlet is steep rocks and cliffs). As I was getting my stuff together (June 15, 2009) I could hear running water behind a screen of trees and bushes. It came from a series of pools and small waterfalls running down the steep rocks. I made it up a few levels and the stream seemed to have more waterfalls up above me, but it was too steep to continue climbing in my drysuit so I gave up and went back to the ocean and the reason I came here. I swam out and conditions were similar to my dive earlier in the day (Stone Steps). Visibility was 20-30 feet near the surface and over 50 feet below 20 feet deep. There was a sandy slope with a steep rocky reef starting at around 50-60 feet deep. I followed it down to about 130 feet and it continued deeper. It seemed like a typical Saanich Inlet dive with scattered rockfish (copper, quillback, yellowtail and a blind-looking tiger). I didn't see any sponges, which I thought was unusual. Similar to my previous dive, there was a huge variety of jellyfish and pelagic tunicates in the water. Because of built-up nitrogen, my computer wouldn't let me stay on the reef for long so I went back up to the shallows which was bright jungle of green seaweed with schools of perch, gobies, nudibranchs and crabs all hanging around.
The visibility made this a great dive, but I don't think I'll take the trouble to dive here again when there are so many places I haven't seen yet in the Inlet.
