Default What is up with all these jellyfish? 8/18 pics

We went out with Swander to dive the Oriskany today and ran into a pile of jellyfish. I just thought the moon jellys were bad last year, these things feel like your getting cut by razor blades.

FYI: if you are diving this weekend, take your hood and wear it.

Those are my favorites. 😲
They wrap around your reg and make you feel all warm and tingly on the lips!

They were thick at pete tide today too. I love when they wrap around your head and stick in between your mask and reg.

Just to pass on, we did not see any at either the Freighter or Liberty Ship today. Talking to another boat, there were none at the tanks inshore of the Pete Tide either. Must still be the little patches of them moving around.

Anybody have any thoughts on whether or not they may be holding to bigger structure? Just a thought.

Had to ascend through about 70' of solid jellyfish last year. Got stung on the lips and back of my neck pretty bad. Took several weeks for the bumps on the back of my neck to completelly disappear. I had a full wetsuit. My dive buddy was not so lucky...he only had a shorty on.

The very next day I ordered a lycra hood with a bib. It's now in my BC pocket...on every dive.

Wow, looks like they were just hit or miss...Dove the Timberholes and never saw a jelly except for the ride out in passing.
