Basic outline of our schedule:

  Morning dive with a huge time window given the favorable tidal exchange this day.  Come back and break down our catch, discuss observations and techniques, cover more theory and prep for rockfish cook off.  For anyone who hasn't already harvested their limit there is an evening dive window as well.
  Morning dives, then process fish, checkout and head home for the weekend.
