    Logged Dive #31 Shaw’s Cove, Laguna Beach, CA

    Shaw’s Cove, Laguna Beach, CA

    Dove with Nick (Photos By Nick)

    This is one of Nick’s suggested spots.

    I met Nick at his place, we took his truck from there.

    It took an hour to get there on PCH (from Long Beach).

    Shaw’s Cove is a small beach with a stair case leading up to a residential area.

    We entered the water around 10 AM, maybe 10:30 AM.

    Nick had his camera, I had my spear.

    Off Of Shaw’s Cove

    Facing the ocean, we swam out and submerged.

    We swam toward the West; not much kelp.

    On the hunt!

    There were a lot of empty mussel shells that littered the bottom.

    Small fish, star fish, some sea urchins.

    Swimming through the arch.

    We found the arch and swam through.

    On the other side of the arch (going West) was a very strong current that kept pushing us back.
    Digging between the rocks.
    There’s also a cave a little North East of the arch — well, maybe a tube like reef structure.

    I went in, but it looked really narrow, so I backed out.

    Abundant fish!

    Nick did the photography, although I snapped a few pictures myself.

    The exit was easy; there’s a lot of stairs going back up.

    Well, same amount as down, but going back up sucked.

    We threw all the stuff in the back of Nick’s truck and went to the dive store to fill the tanks.

    I’m borrowing Instructor Ed’s tank, so I had to get it visually inspected. The last tag was from 2002.
