    Free Diving Pt Vicente Fishing Access

    Point Vicente Fishing Access, Palos Verdes, CA
    (aka Cardiac Hill)

    Free diving With Ed

    Max depth: About 20 feet
    Waves: 1-3 foot swells where we went in
    Visibility: 10-15 feet
    Water Temperature: Maybe about 60 degrees
    Total Ocean Time: 35 minutes or so.

    I spent a great yesterday with my girlfriend and needed to cool off with some free diving today.

    I picked Ed up around 8 AM and headed for Cardiac Hill.

    We geared up and walked down the main trail and entered the water from the rocks to the right.

    To the left, where there is a pebble beach, was getting pounded with some fairly rough swells.

    We both trolled around the reefs and rocks towards the East.

    Aside from a few Garibaldi, we didn’t see any fish.

    I practiced breath hold diving and am getting better and better at it.

    I need a depth gauge and timer to see how long and how deep I can hold my breath.

    I think I may have been a little too buoyant as it was sort of a challenge getting down.

    Ed collected a Sea Cucumber.

    Even though the rocks were slippery, with the ocean being fairly calm on this end and the fact we had no tanks we both exited fairly quickly with no problems.

    Walking out and up, the nearby fishermen were discouraged and packing up, with no fish caught.

    We walked up the trail, giving our fish report to would-be fishermen.

    “What? There’s no fish down there,” they would respond in shock.

    Downing a few beers in the parking lot, we moved to the Old Marineland access lot where there was a big party and barbecue amongst the local divers.

    I believe the “Reef check” group was doing some counting.

    I stopped by Ed’s place for a Korean lunch (steak, rice, kim chi and sea cucumber) and made it home to my really pissed off girlfriend.

    She was suppose to go to church this morning but decided to stay home and wait for me.

    “Diving shouldn’t take seven hours!

    We’ll see what happens.
