Kelp…my favorite underwater forest. I love the way the long lines of kelp sway with the ocean surge…hypnotic. Did you know Kelp is known to contain at least 60 different minerals and elements, as well.
The underwater visibility along the California coast is highly variable, but in winter months, the Pacific can turn a deep shade of blue. This large kelp forest off the coast of Big Sur is an example of this intense clarity.
