Good morning Divers!!!
Welcome those new to our list of local OC divers. It looks like our Nov/Dec good viz conditions are approaching, so show up for a scheduled dive soon. Welcome aboard.

Quick addition to Louis' dive report from yesterday. As I mentioned Louis & I discussed how the viz is improving and it is "That time of the year" when we get our best viz. Plus one of our divers saw a school of CA Barracuda which I have only seen twice in nearly 30 years of local diving. Another one of our divers reported a school of Yellow Fin Tuna, which I have never seen in Laguna. All I saw was our normal cast of critters, but it goes to show you the kind of sea life we can see here. Plus another one of our divers got 92 min of BT on his AL 80, good stuff. I also enjoyed seeing Bijan again, been awhile. Very good viz too.

Current diving conditions in Laguna. I have not yet seen a rain advisory from the County, it hasn't rained much here in S OC, so we'll see. But the surf is running 1-2+ feet, which IF Saturday was any indication means keep an eye open for those 3+ footers that show up from time to time. But since our viz at Deadman's was 15-20+ feet, I will say viz today should be 10-20 feet around most of Laguna. If you head out, drop me a dive report.

Our plans are for Saturday. Stay tuned.

Diving!! DO IT!! Safely...
