    Free Diving/Spear Fishing At Cardiac Hill

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

    Free Diving/Solo Diving/Spear Fishing

    Max depth: 20 feet or so
    Waves: 1-2 feet, pretty calm
    Visibility: 15 feet, murky in some places
    Total Ocean Time: A little over one hour
    Temperature: Cool

    I was in the water at about 9:30 AM and went to the right looking for the supposed “yellow tail.”

    I dove deeper than last time out – probably to 20 feet or so.

    I remember thinking “this is a long way up…” On one dive I came up pretty dizzy, seeing stars in front of my eyes.

    I rested a bit after that.

    I chummed the water a bit with some sea urchins.

    Just as before, I didn’t see any fish big enough to shoot!

    All I saw were small sheephead and Garibaldi.

    I made it back to shore with no problem, and out again with an empty hook.

    I met a few SCUBA divers while walking up.

    Logged Dive #139 – Safety Diver At An OW Class, Casino Point

    Casino Point, Catalina, CA

    I dove as a safety diver with Instructor John’s Open Water class.*

    In With: 1900 psi
    Out With: 900 psi
    Max depth: 50 feet or so
    Waves: Insignificant
    Visibility: 20 feet
    Water Temperature: Seems like it’s getting colder
    Total Bottom Time: About 30 minutes
    *The names of students have been changed, probably because I don’t remember them to begin with.

    Pedro decided to sit this one out, so this was the most enjoyable dive of the day.

    John, his three newer students and myself went for another dive.

    We all followed John.

    The “sight seer” did his thing and kept having to catch up to the group.

    Nothing notable happened on this dive.

    On the way back to San Pedro, it was sort of crowded.

    We exchanged diving and work stories amongst us.

    Out of seven students, I believe five received their C-cards today.

    Pedro was told that he did not pass; John wants him to do another trip to Catalina.
