    Logged Dive #157 – Solo Diving At Long Point

    Long Point, Rancho Palos Verdes, CA
    (aka The Old Marineland)

    Solo Diving

    In With: 3000 psi
    Out With: 200 psi
    Max depth: 70 feet
    Waves: 1-3 feet
    Visibility: 15-20 feet
    Water Temperature: Cool
    Total Bottom Time: 55 minutes

    I haven’t heard from Nick; he’s suppose to be back in town this weekend.

    Oh well, I can go off “The Point” on this dive.

    The waves were fairly calm and flat.

    I took my game bag to look for lobsters.

    I went off The Point with no problem; two other divers entered five minutes behind me.

    I proceeded North, it looked like the current was going South.

    Lots of fish this dive, schools of Mackerel, lots of Sheephead.

    Very abundant sea life!

    I saw a lobster within the first five minutes, but it took off once I approached.

    I spent the next 20 minutes looking for lobsters.

    I surfaced at 1000 psi and noticed that I was half way to the cove.

    I headed towards the cove, but it seemed as though the current changed midway because I had a hell of a time getting in.

    Logged Dive #156 – Yet Another Day As A Dive Professional, I Think?

    Casino Point, Catalina, CA

    Dove with Instructor John and his Open Water students Lou, Bud, Harry and Monfret*

    In With: 3000 psi
    Out With: 1800 psi
    Max depth: 60 feet plus
    Waves: Insignificant
    Visibility: 20 feet
    Water Temperature: Cool
    Total Bottom Time: 30 minutes
    *Student names have been changed.

    This was the “fun dive” that we made after lunch and a significant wait for air.

    Everyone dove again, except Leeza; she was just too tired.

    I followed the tail end of the group.

    Not having to keep my eye on Leeza made this dive a little more enjoyable.

    I think John pointed some scallops out to us.

    We just hung out at the barge, followed John – same old, same old routine.

    The whole dive went smoothly, nothing to report.

    When we got back, the wait for air was so long, we decided to leave and luckily enough, we were able to catch the early boat back.

    Leeza, Bud, Lou and Monfret graduated the Basic Open Water class today!
