    The Rock Quarry, Catalina Island, CA

    This location is actually an old rock quarry that had been used to build some of the break waters in the Los Angeles area.

    I was the second one off the boat.

    I trolled around; saw lobster, garibaldi, sheephead, etc.

    A couple of seals passed by me.

    I don’t remember running across any other divers; sort of strange because of trips like this, I usually do.

    This place has big boulders with lots of kelp.

    Nice dive, lots to see in the rocks.

    I heard something leaking, so I took my BC off and found that the low-pressure hose was leaking.

    I’m glad it wasn’t a high-pressure hose and I’m glad I wasn’t at 100 feet!

    Students train off the Bottom Scratcher.

    I stayed mostly with Captain Greg on the way back.

    I think I was only one of three divers on the boat who wasn’t either an instructor or student.
