    Logged Dive #46 White Point, San Pedro, CA

    Filed under: Beach Dives,SCUBA Dives

    White Point, San Pedro, CA
    Dove with Nick

    This is a new dive spot for me.

    I met Nick on the street and we took his truck down the steep driveway.

    It was about 9:30 AM.

    We entered the water through a cove that’s protected from the large waves.

    High tide was at 8:30 AM.

    The rocks were sharp and the walk was slightly tough.

    We swam to the first kelp bed and submerged.

    The environment looks a lot like Shaw’s Cove in Laguna Beach (See Dive #31) , but there seems to be more life.

    There doesn’t seem to be a lot of “dead spots” like Long Point.

    There was always something to see – kelp, sea urchins and starfish.

    Somewhere around here are sulfur springs.

    The whole place sort of smells like sewage.

    We surfaced a couple of times to get our bearings.

    We lost the kelp bed first and the second time we came in further towards the shore than we thought.

    The hunting seems to be good here.

    Nick and I were purely observers.

    I didn’t hunt, he didn’t bring his camera.

    We were under water about 50 minutes total.

    Excellent dive, we will definitely be coming back.

    In with: 2,900 psi
    Out with: 500 psi
    Max depth: 35 minutes
    Waves: 1-3 feet/choppy
    Visibility: 20 feet/a bit soupy
    Water temperature: Cool. 60 degrees F, I guess
