    Logged Dive #77 The Old Marineland

    Long Point, CA
    (aka The Old Marineland)

    Solo Diving – at least mostly

    In With: 2800 psi
    Out With: 800 psi
    Max depth: 42 psi
    Waves: 1-2 feet
    Visibility: 15-20 feet
    Water Temperature: Mostly warm, cold at 40 feet
    Total Bottom Time: About 45 minutes

    Ed and I went down to Long Point about 9:25 AM.

    Not too many other divers were around.

    Ed went free diving; I went SCUBA diving.

    We went just on the other side of the rocks off of Pigeon Shit cave.

    Ed was hunting with his spear gun.

    I pretty much followed the same path as yesterday.

    I tried to find that lobster trap, but I couldn’t.

    Sometimes I was way off of where I thought it was.

    Nice dive, pretty much like yesterday.

    I came back in; Ed was already back.

    The purge valve in his snorkel was missing so he made it a short dive.

    He says that he prefers free diving here because SCUBA equipment is too heavy to carry up and down the hill; I then pointed out several women SCUBA divers here.

    We also met two of the “Sole Searchers.”

    Yes, it’s a play on words; the group is from Pasadena.

    Logged Dive #76 Long Point, RPV, CA

    Long Point, CA
    (aka The Old Marineland)

    “Patriot” Day, Solo Diving

    In With: 3100 psi
    Out With: 800 psi
    Max depth: 42 feet
    Waves: 1-2 feet
    Visibility: 15-20 feet
    Water Temperature: Warm
    Total Bottom Time: 50 minutes

    There was some kind of a class on exit/entry and the environment going on in the parking lot – a SCUBA class that is.

    Dennis and Al were coming out as I was entering.

    Some kayakers and fishermen were around.

    I entered about 9:20 AM and swam around the rocky point off of Pigeon Shit cave.

    The visibility was good; about 15-20 feet, but a little silty past the rocks.

    I saw many fish, sheephead, an octopus – I’m seeing more octopi lately.

    Maybe I just know what to look for.

    There is an old abandoned lobster trap that I can use October 2nd.

    It is in 40 feet of water just a tad on the North side off the rocky point.

    I’ve been there before.

    Nice dive; nothing notable that’s out of the ordinary; easy exit.
