    Logged Dive #115, Casino Point, Catalina

    Casino Point, Catalina Island, California

    Dove as a safety diver with Instructor John and his Open Water students Stan The Macho Man, Tuasopo (a diver that never earned a C-card) and a married couple Bonnie and Clyde.*

    In With: 3100 psi
    Out With: 1700 psi
    Max depth: 60 feet
    Waves: 1-2 feet
    Visibility: 20 feet at best
    Water Temperature: 60 degrees Fahrenheit
    Total Bottom Time: 19 minutes
    *Note: Student names have been changed.

    We did a skin dive first to check buoyancy.

    Bonnie was a little tired and couldn’t manage to manually inflate her BC jacket; her husband helped.

    The SCUBA dive went without any major problems.

    John lead, I took up the rear.

    I followed Bonnie up a few times because she had problems equalizing.

    Casino Point was very crowded and everyone pretty much looks the same under water.

    The tail end got separated from the head of the line a few times.

    It was low tide and the stairs didn’t quite make it all the way down to the water’s edge, but everyone made it back over the slippery rocks.

    Logged Dive #114, Cabrillo Beach, San Pedro

    Cabrillo Beach, San Pedro, CA

    Solo Dive, but with Instructor John’s Rescue class (Ron and Glenn) in the water, too.

    Basically “So Cal SCUBA Diving.”

    In With: 3000 psi
    Out With: 2700 psi
    Max depth: 15 feet
    Waves: 1-2 feet
    Visibility: 3 feet
    Water Temperature: 55 degrees according to a lifeguard
    Total Bottom Time: 10 minutes

    Visibility was so bad and my bottom time was only 10 minutes, I am wondering if I should even count this as a dive.

    I exited the beach over the rocks, following John and his class in.

    I helped his class by being the “victim” for the rest of the day.

    They had the privilege of dragging me, in full gear out of the water and across the beach.

    Later, I had the privilege of cleaning tons of sand out of my gear.

    I will be coming along as a safety diver with his Basic Open Water Class later this month.
