    Diving Dead Man’s Reef In Laguna Beach

    I finally made it down to Laguna Beach again!

    Military Bob was nice enough to invite me down for a couple of dives.

    It was interesting to note how many divers, fisherman and beach goers can squeeze into residential parking spots.

    Military Bob’s regulator was free flowing; I don’t know what we did - we banged on it, shoved a few screw drivers down to try and adjust it and poured water over it - but we fixed it.

    “Can you breathe through it?” I asked.

    “Yeah.”

    “Well I guess we’re good to go.”

    We found a huge lobster in 25 feet of water, but were unable to dig it out.

    We headed back when I was down to 1000 psi; after a short surface swim to the beach, we were out with no trouble.

    1. How did you like deadmans, I have made dozens of dives there, mostly at night, and it is truely a spectacular reef. Better for photography, but still holds a few legal bugs.
