    Dove With Nick

    Max depth: 20 feet
    Waves: 1-2 feet
    Visibility: 15 feet
    Water Temperature: Cool

    We met at 8:40 AM; the waves were very calm.

    I brought my binoculars to peer down from the top of the cliff.

    Nick heads down the trail.

    Me heading down the trail.

    We started down the hill about 9:15 AM.

    Nick had his camera, I was sightseeing.

    The trail from the best entry point.

    We went out about 100 yards past the end of the main trail.

    Me off of Cardiac Hill.

    We submerged and went around the whole island.

    We swam out to the mini island in the middle of the cove.

    Nick Off Of A Reef

    Nick lurks off of Cardiac Hill.

    We spotted a guitarfish, several lobsters and a huge rockfish; also, several large Sheephead.

    Off of Cardiac Hill.

    A green anemone.

    The whole cove is one big shallow reef.

    The cove is very shallow and the deepest it gets is 20 feet – if you go way out.

    Me surfacing off of Cardiac Hill.

    I followed Nick the second half of the trip.

    We ended up way out.

    I lost my bearings a few times, but the surface was always just a few feet up.

    We came ashore with no problems.

    It, being so shallow, I was only able to get one fin off before washing ashore.

    A father and his two kids were asking us about diving.

    The father seemed like he was amazed that we did this kind of diving “just for fun.”

    Me enthusiastic for the walk up Cardiac Hill.

    I was very enthusiastic about the walk up Cardiac Hill.

    Logged Dive #70, Long Point, Palos Verdes, CA

    Filed under: Beach Dives,SCUBA Dives

    Long Point, CA
    (aka The Old Marineland)

    Dove with Nick

    In with: 2800 psi
    Out with: 600 psi
    Max depth: 35 feet
    Waves: 2-3 feet
    Visibility: 10 feet
    Water temperature: Cool
    Total Bottom Time: About 50 minutes

    We met around 8:15 AM; there were a lot of divers there.

    I later found out that it was “groups” of divers from various clubs – one of the groups was from Dive and Surf.

    We went off the cove and went East – there was a noticeable current going West.

    We went East of rocks near pigeon shit cave; two lobsters were hiding under a reef.

    We basically circled and ran in to three other divers who were looking for two buddies that got separated.

    They sort of scared me; I was looking for something when they approached.

    Towards the shore is a dense kelp bed with lots of fish.

    Nick didn’t have his camera, I wasn’t hunting – we were simply sight seeing.

    I came back with no problems – I took my fins off and walked ashore.

    A girl who was entering slipped on the rocks.

    A male friend was helping her; I went back in the water and retrieved one of her fins.

    She was OK, but apparently ripped her BC jacket.

    Her and her buddy called off the SCUBA dive and went snorkeling.

    I met the other girl some time ago – I think.

    They didn’t seem like they knew the area though.

    One girl smoked clove cigarettes and the male was her boyfriend.

    The other girl looked really young; she was the one who fell.

    They said that they usually dive in Mexico.
