Comments : Seven Tree Island is an awesome site. The dive is actually around the perimeter of a small island in Browning Pass. One side of the island offers a shear wall, while the other side offers a shallow seabed covered in white broken shells. To my amazement, I found dozens of Black Rockfish sleeping on the seabed, making my job as a photographer MUCH easier.
