Good morning Divers!!!
Welcome those new to our list of local OC divers. Just show up for a scheduled dive soon and you will have buddies to dive with while gaining experience in our local waters too. Welcome aboard.

Current diving conditions around Laguna Beach. I noticed the swell models are on the 2 foot scale, but nearly all of the area is showing 1 foot waves, so I will say that surf is running 1-3 feet, not bad at all. Viz today should be in the 10-25+ feet range today, it will depend on where you go hit the water. If you head out, send me a dive report.

Our plans are for Saturday. I expect 1-3+ feet of surf at this point. I am hoping viz will hold on at 15-20+ feet. We'll see how it goes, you be ready to dive.

I saw a show on Science Channel about the invasive Lionfish on the East coast and Caribbean, bad news. Very informative show, can't remember its name, but look for it on the Science Channel.

Diving!! DO IT!! Safely...
