    Logged Dive #81 Night Dive Off Of Redondo Beach

    Early morning “night” dive
    Veteran’s Park
    Redondo Beach, CA

    Dove with Instructor John and another student Ron T. as part of an Advanced diving class.

    In With: 2900 psi
    Out With: 100 psi
    Max depth: 70 feet
    Waves: 1-3 feet
    Visibility: 15 feet plus
    Water Temperature: Cold at 70 feet
    Total Bottom Time: 35 minutes

    We met at 5 AM to do a night dive.

    We entered about 6 AM off of a spot closer to the pier than I normally go; about 100 yards closer to the pier.

    We found a glow stick floating around; luckily there was no diver attached to it.

    We descended to 50 feet (it was suppose to be only 30!) and went South along the trench.

    We accidentally hit 70 feet at least once.

    I saw the usual assortment of trash and an octopus in a bottle.

    We traveled well past the stairs, so when Ron hit 1500 psi we turned back.

    They followed me since I “know every piece of trash down there.”

    We went back up to 30 feet, but I couldn’t find the bucket of cement – the marker for the stairs; had I gone a little further we would have hit it.

    By the time we got out it was sunrise.

    We ran into a large school of mackerel on exit.
