Good morning Divers!!!
Welcome those new to our list of local OC divers. Show up for a scheduled dive soon and you will have buddies to dive with and at the same time gaining experience in our local waters. Welcome aboard.

Current diving conditions in Laguna Beach. I looked at the swell models, from what I heard yesterday about high surf around S OC and San Diego. I was concerned. But the swell models show Laguna getting its normal protection from Catalina. Surf as I write this is running 2-3 feet, so not ideal for our diving, but manageable. Viz today should be 10-15+ feet today, reduced from the great viz we had over the last 2 months. So it is possible our great conditions are over until next year (Nov/Dec). I was surprised to read dive reports from Sat/Sun and it made me wonder why people don't take the County's advisories to mind. I know, we all make our own decisions about diving, I just choose to avoid getting sick when bacteria levels are high.

Our plans are for Saturday. We will decide how things look on Thu/Fri, so stay tuned...

Happy Birthday wish for Marc, one of the first divers to join up with us many years ago. Happy Birthday to youuu... I can't sing...

Diving!! DO IT!! Safely...
