    Logged Dive #93 Long Point, RPV, CA

    Long Point, Rancho Palos Verdes, CA
    (aka The Old Marineland)

    Solo Diving

    In With: 2800 psi
    Out With: 400 psi
    Max depth: 40 feet
    Waves: 1-2 feet
    Visibility: 20 feet but silty
    Water Temperature: Sort of cold
    Total Bottom Time: 50 minutes

    I got into the water around 9:30 AM.

    No divers were around until two showed up and introduced themselves as “Ollie and Mark.”

    They had to leave shortly afterwards for air.

    I went off the cove and followed the last dive’s instructions on how to get to the trap.

    The instructions are perfect!

    I swam out and aligned myself with the rock and indentation.

    I submerged to 30 feet and went the opposite of 140 degrees; I ran right in to it!

    The sea urchins and peanut butter were picked clean… and no lobsters!

    Visibility started to get really silty.

    It was high tide, starting to get lower.

    I searched around for more lobster, or even just a lobster!

    I ended up going towards the shore almost running a ground on the other side of pigeon shit cave.

    I looked where I was – in 15 feet of water.

    I made it ashore with no problem.

    A father from Alaska was on the trail with his two sons who were there fishing.

    I gave his kids some fishing weights that I had found on the bottom; the father is interested in snorkeling.

    I think I’ve had enough of the lobster hunting thing for a few days.
