Diving aboard the Magician was awesome, conditions were REALLY FLAT on the way over to Catalina Island.
Our first dive of the day was at "rippers cove" located on the front side of Catalina Island, tons of fish were seen! Schools of more species than I can write were visible in every direction. My students couldn't take their mask off without hitting some fish! Everything from tons of Garibaldi, hordes of super vibrant blue banded goby's lurking in the nearby rocks and kelp forrest and even a bat ray in the sand was spotted on our dive! Visibility was about 40-50 feet at this location, there was no current and the water temp was 73 degrees!!!
Our groups second and final dive was at Fraggle Rock, the sandy bottom and nearby reef make this site ideal for the newly certified novice and the advanced diver alike. Lots of nearby structure harboring spiny lobsters, kelp bass, white sea bass and the occasional giant black sea bass. Nudibranchs, coral fans and other great finds can be photographed at this site. Visibility was about 30-50 feet at this location, there was no current and the water temp was 72 degrees!!!
