Visiting the Bottom
Marine aquarists keep the ocean in their tanks, but scuba divers visit the fishes where they live.

On July 12, I was able to take a unique trip with my cousins Dan and Jordon Morris. Dan had contacted me early in July and asked if I wanted to take a dive boat out for a scuba trip in San Diego’s Wreck Alley.
I jumped at the chance, and on that Sunday we trekked to San Diego in the early morning to board the dive boat LoisAnn for a day of diving.
The trip was excellent. I hadn’t had a chance to dive Wreck Alley prior to our trip. Our dives took us to the Yukon, a 366-foot Canadian destroyer escort intentionally sunk as a scuba attraction off of Mission Beach, San Diego, in 105 feet of water.
