    Logged Dive #35 Long Point, CA

    Long Point, CA
    (aka The Old Marineland)

    Dove with Nick

    The shore has been getting tossed the last few days.

    I was suppose to go free diving with Ed yesterday, but Malaga Cove and Long Point was too turbulent.

    I woke up this morning and scouted Redondo and Long Point.

    I called Nick and reported that Long Point looked manageable.

    We met at Long Point at 9 AM; went out about 9:35 AM and submerged a little before 10:00 AM.

    I fell back trying to get in.

    I put my fins on after walking out.

    We swam to where I submerge usually.

    I took Nick on my usual hunting route around the kelp bed off the cove.

    Visability really sucked, 10 feet and soupy.

    I broke open some sea urchins to attract some fish — I was hunting only for sheephead.

    Nick was cameraless following me.

    We surfaced after losing the kelp bed.

    Nick had a hard time equalizing going back down.

    Visability was really bad.

    I hunted a little bit more and then we headed for shore.

    We surfaced directly where we went out, but way out!

    We swam in and made it to shore.

    Nick had no problem getting ashore.

    In with: 3100 psi
    Out with: 500 psi
    Max depth: 45 feet
    Waves: 2 feet
    Water Temp: 56 degrees F
    Visibility: 10 feet and soupy

    I met two free divers, Theo and Jason.
