Good morning Divers!!!
Welcome those new to our list of local OC divers. Simply show up for a scheduled dive soon and you'll gain experience in our waters and also have buddies to dive with. Welcome aboard.

On Saturday I cancelled our plans because nearly all of the dive reports I read reported viz less than 10 feet. It was a tough choice for me to cancel. On Friday I received some more dive reports saying "Good choice, viz sucked" in different spots around Laguna. I read a couple of dive reports from Laguna on Saturday, even Crescent Bay was washed out, 4-5 feet of surf, even with decent breaks between sets, the viz was just 5-10 feet. I would think with more than 3 feet of surf the viz would suck, hence why we usually don't go in if the surf is over 3 feet. My experience is that when surf is like that, the viz is always "Not good", so we don't dive when the surf is up, it is just "Not worth it" for us. But as I always say, we all need to make our own decisions and figure it on our own too. I do find it ironic that Louis has been away for 2 weekends and we've had bad viz for 2 Saturdays, no more missing Saturday dives Louis... Doh.

Our plans are for this Saturday. From the weather forecasts, it is supposed to be HOT on Saturday, we'll see. Stay tuned.

Diving!! DO IT!! Safely...
