Dive Reports

 

Saturday @ Oil Rigs Eureka and Ellen

Dive Boat: Pacific Star

Temp: 58F with thermocline at 100' dropping to 55F

Viz: 30' above 30' and below 100' otherwise it was 10' in between

Conditions: Medium current at Eureka, no current at Ellen, flat calm seas

 

Ride out to the rigs was in heavy fog but it cleared up nicely around the rigs with flat, calm seas and sunny skies.  We dove Eureka jumping into green water with about 10' viz which opened up to 25' below 100'.  Ellen had blue water to 30' where the sealions had fun chasing enormous schools of sardines.  Lots of cabezon and male sheephead that looked about 2' long.

 

Sunday @ Catalina Island

Dive Site: Emerald Bay

Dive Boat: Pacific Star

Temp: 72F with thermocline at 60'

Viz: 30'+

Conditions: beautiful :)

 

Ride out to Catalina was in nice calm seas.  Water temperatures were a balmy 72 degrees with lots of divers going without hoods and gloves.  Visibility was at least 30 feet with no current and sightings of the usual kelp creatures (senoritas, sheephead, kelp bass, garibaldi, blennies, gobies, tons of lobster) and reports of a leopard shark.

 

Bonus Beachdiving Friday @ Laguna Beach

I went beach diving with a friend so might as well share this dive report as well!

 

Dive Site: Montage/Treasure Island

Temp: 69F

Viz: 30'

Conditions: fantastic!

 

With Laguna protected by the Catalina "shadow" decided to go south and check out Montage.  Great conditions with maybe 1' surf, slight surge, and warm water.  Lots of life: 4' leopard shark checking us out instead of swimming away, sleeping 3' horn shark, at least 12 Spanish Shawls grouped onto a rock, tons of lobster, and the usual kelp forest fish.
