    Logged Dive #36 Long Point, CA

    Long Point, CA
    (aka The Old Marineland)

    Dove with Nick

    I met Nick at 8:15 AM.

    There were about nine other divers there.

    According to Nick, who had talked to them, they were a SCUBA instructors club.

    They convinced Nick that we should go off the point.

     I brought my spear, Nick was a spectator.

    Going out I got tossed by the waves.

    The best place to go out on the point is between two rocks.

    The water fell, I landed between the crevice and was thrown back up when the next wave hit.

    Nick took his time getting in.

    Once out, we rested as the instructors went in.

    They were about 10 minutes behind us.

    Visibility was 10 feet and soupy — about the same as last week.

    I broke open a couple of sea urchins to chum the water; fish came to eat very quickly.

    The kelp bed off the point is the place to hunt.

    There were many fish, many intricate reefs.

    I shot a couple of big looking fish; but when I measured them they were not as big as I had hoped.

    I brought them in.

    We basically swam around in circles at the reef off the point.

    Nearing the end, we swam in underwater until Nick had 500 psi, then surfaced.

    We swam to the cove to exit.

    Entering the point is easy.

    Nobody (from what I’ve seen) exits the point.

    I banged my leg coming out.

    I shot two sheepheads on this dive.

    In with: 3100 psi
    Out with: 400 psi
    Max depth: 42 feet
    Waves: 2-3 feet, high tide
    Water Temp: 58 degrees +/-
    Visibility: 10 feet and soupy.
