Good morning Divers!!!
Welcome those new to our list of local OC divers. All you need to do is to show up for a scheduled dive soon and you too can have dive buddies and gain experience in our local waters. Welcome aboard.

Current diving conditions in Laguna Beach. Typical Laguna in summer. When I say that you should immediately know the surf is running 1-3 feet and the viz is 10-15 with the occasional 20 feet in spots. The live cams and the swell models all show similar things, 1-3+ on surf with a slight S swell. It is a beautiful morning in Laguna on the live cams, sunny & warm already. Make sure if you head out you don't "Cook" yourself going down to the beach, have some water to dump into your wetsuit to stay cool. There is nothing like being in the direct sun in a wetsuit.

Our plans are for Saturday, it is Wed and we have a couple of days. Louis & I will keep an eye on the conditions, you have your gear all ready & be ready to dive.

I got an email about an underwater film festival on Sep 14th in Santa Barbara. They will offer you discounts on tickets by mentioning South Coast Divers. For more information, they have a Facebook link & web site:

Diving!! DO IT!! Safely...
