    Logged Dive #20 Long Point Thanksgiving Day Dive!

    My Thanksgiving Day Dive!

    Long Point, CA
    (aka The Old Marineland)

    Solo Diving

    I got a late start.

    I wasn’t sure if I was going biking or diving.

    Anyway, I got to Long Point about 9:15 AM.

    It was sort of windy at shore, calm inland.

    The waves on shore were about 2-3 feet, but once out it was choppy.

    A couple of small fishing boats were around (small = two man).

    No camera, I didn’t believe visibility would be that great.

    Visibility was 15 feet; water was cool.

    I basically did the same route as November 23rd.

    However, when I came up, I was way the hell out, but in line with the shore that I entered.

    Same stuff as before.

    I can’t imagine fishing there.

    The fish are so small.

    In with: 3000 psi
    Out with: 500 psi
    One hour until high tide.
    Cold water: 50 degrees F +/-
    2 foot waves

    Afterwards, I went to my parents’ place for Thanksgiving.

    Logged Dive #19 Long Point, CA

    Long Point, CA
    (aka The Old Marineland)

    Solo Diving

    I just got my wetsuit back from JMJ Manufacturing.

    I had them sow up my open zipper in the back and put the zipper in the front – much better!

    There were several other divers here.

    I entered the water around 8 AM.

    The water was chilly, but I was protected enough so that I was comfortable.

    The visibility was spectacular – 30+ feet., the best I’ve seen in a long time.

    Actually the best I’ve seen; I’ll probably take my camera next time.

    My navigation was perfect.

    I went down and came up (30 minutes later) in almost the exact spot.

    The scenery was beautiful.

    Many fish, mostly small, lots of life.


    In with 2500 psi
    Out with 500 psi

    High tide, cold water 50 degrees Fahrenheit.
    Max depth 45 feet, 2 ft waves.
