    Logged Dive #160 – Solo Diving The Old Marineland

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

    Solo Diving

    In With: 3000 psi
    Out With: 500 psi
    Max depth: 40 feet or so
    Waves: 1-2 feet
    Visibility: 15-20 feet
    Water Temperature: cool
    Total Bottom Time: 60 minutes

    I arrived around 8:30 AM; Dennis, Al and a whole group of people were there.

    The Point looked a little rough as the waves came in from the West.

    I went off The Cove and swam to the East.

    I came across a lobster under a rock; I tipped it over to grab the lobster, but it did a disappearing act – it just vanished.

    Directly out from a rock that I have named “friendship rock” is an old pier foundation.

    I waited in 15 feet of water for my dive to be 60 minutes long.

    I exited without incident.

    I got hassled filling my yellow Aluminum tank at pacific Wilderness.

    Apparently, it’s made from an Aluminum that has been known to explode while refilling.

    I had to pay extra for them to do a “visual plus” inspection.
