    Logged Dive #295: SCUBA Diving The Avalon Wreck, Palos Verdes, CA

    The Avalon Wreck, Palos Verdes, California

    Diving With Mike C. from the Divevets.

    In With: 3000 psi
    Out With: 700 psi
    Max depth: 70 feet
    Waves: Pretty calm with some sporadic chop
    Visibility: 15 to 20 feet
    Water Temperature: Sort of cold at depth
    Total Bottom Time: About 40 minutes

    I dried my camera housing out and spit on the lens to hopefully prevent it from fogging up on this dive.

    Mike and I descended down a marker that was placed over some part of the wreck.

    At a depth of 70 feet, my camera housing fogged up again.

    Vis was not as good as the last dive.

    Mike strung a line from near the anchor line and we swam to the crane; we ended up touring the whole wreck.

    During the safety stop, my camera unfogged.

    During the safety stop, my camera defogged; this is the only underwater picture that I took today that’s worth a shit.

    One of the divers told me, “Just put your camera in the microwave for about 20 minutes – that’ll dry it out!”

    A suggestion that I got from Mike was to put those silicon packs that absorb moisture in the camera case.

    We break out the deco bottles.

    Once back at the dock, Dan took off and some others went out to eat; I had to leave and attend to some work.

    1. What a cool post. You sure know how to have fun. Doesn’t a foggy camera lens drive you nuts! I have that happen in high humidity too. My hubby and I enjoy snorkeling. Have always thought about diving.

    2. Diving looks so interesting. It’s literally a whole different world down there. Checking out old wrecks must be cool, too. Thanks for sharing your adventure.
