    February Dive At Terranea Resort

    February 16, 2014

    Still sore from training to be a cage fighter, I was determined to ignore the pain and get in a Sunday Services dive.

    I’ve been MIA with the Sunday group for a while, so I also thought I would fire up the ghetto grill.

    The waves looked flat; even the Point entry looked easy for non-macho divers.

    We geared up and headed for the Point.

    I don’t know what it is with me hitting the water, but as soon as I put my fins on and flopped on the calm water to swim out, the water receded, landing me stranded on a boulder, only to have a wave pick me up and slam me against another boulder.

    I shook it off and swam the retreating swell out.

    Vis looked good in the shallows
    Visibility looked really good in the shallows.

    Off of Terranea.
    After a swim out, we descended.

    The Point At Terranea Resort
    Rancho Palos Verdes, CA, USA

    In With: 2900 psi
    Out With: 100 psi
    Max depth: 62 feet
    Waves: Slightly choppy on entrance, flat otherwise
    Visibility: 10-15 feet, but silty
    Water Temperature: 62 degrees
    Air Temperature: 77 degrees
    Total Bottom Time: 40 minutes

    Visibility Sort Of Sucked.

    It’s a phenomenon that has yet to be explained, but the fact that Chipper and I are in the same water has an affect on the conditions – the deep water was dark and silty, with 10 foot visibility at best.

    Reverend Al guided us to the statue…

    It is nice to see the marine life coming back.

    Lobsters just stare as we swim by, knowing that they are protected.

    Mike saw a shark, but other than that, this was a nice and uneventful dive.

    The water was so calm getting out, I didn’t even power up my camera to catch a potential wipe out on the rocks.

    We devalue the parking lot.
    Traditional debriefing ensued.

    The  ghetto grill.
    Polska Kielbasa and Beer Brats were on today’s menu.
