    Logged Dive #21 Long Point, CA

    Solo Diving

    It’s suppose to rain tomorrow, so I dove today.

    If it doesn’t rain tomorrow, I’ll dive tomorrow.

    I got to Long Point about 8:30 AM.

    Salvage and clean-up ships.

    Two other would-be divers were asking me what the big boat with the containment buoys were doing.

    I found out later that they were containing fuel and oil from a fishing boat that sank — this was after I came back out.

    Waves in and out were about three and a half feet.

    It was two hours from high tide.

    I went in with 3200 psi, left with 500 psi.

    I took my camera hoping that it was going to be as clear as November 23rd — 30 feet visibility.

    Visibility was only 15 feet or so.

    Oh well, I tried 200 speed film instead of 400.

    The pictures came out much better.

    But hey, a $40 camera is just that… a $40 camera!


    Garibaldi along a reef.

    A darkened reef.

    I’m at 40 feet now.

    I’m at 40 feet now.

    The water was cold; about 45-50 degrees F; I got used to it once submerged.

    Another Garibaldi!

    A self portrait - retarded looking diver?

    A retarded looking diver; Okay, that’s a self portrait!

    I got tangled on kelp a few times but was able to pull myself free.

    An orange blob and red blob.

    A rock fish.

    Easy going back in, I mean coming back to shore.

    I met a few diving researchers that say they regularly monitor the temperature of the water off of Long Point.

    In with: 3200 psi
    Out with: 500 psi
    Max depth: 45 feet
    Waves: 3 and a half feet
    Water temperature: 45 degrees (I think) cold
