    Logged Dive #147 – Safety Diver, Casino Point, Catalina

    Casino Point, Catalina, CA

    Dove with Instructor John and his two advanced students.

    In With: 3100 psi
    Out With: 900 psi
    Max depth: 95 feet
    Waves: 1 to 2 feet, insignificant
    Visibility: 25 feet
    Water Temperature: Cool, cold at depth
    Total Bottom Time: 50 minutes

    This was our after lunch deep dive.

    The beginning students were excluded from this dive.

    We swam to the edge of the park, to the right of the stair case and submerged to 95 feet.

    We followed John to the Sujac.

    John started digging around in the crevices at the bottom of the boat – for what, I don’t know.

    The advanced students were suppose to take a compass heading before submerging and bring us back to the stairs.

    We followed them until it was apparent they had missed the stairs.

    John checked everyone’s air, then lead us to the barge.

    John went through the opening in the barge, the students followed and then me.

    The student ahead of me got caught on kelp or couldn’t find the exit; I backed up.

    I found out later he had to cut himself free.

    We ended up covering the entire park – the Sujac to the barge.

    We exited with no problems.
