Good morning Divers!!!
Current scuba diving conditions in Laguna Beach. Yesterday I kept an eye on the swell models and when they move to their 3 foot scale, that's a bad sign. On the S CA model, it appeared that Laguna was getting 3-5 feet of surf. But today, the scale is on the 2 foot scale and it shows Laguna getting 2-3+ feet of surf. Viz is lower, I'll try to stay a bit optimistic and say the viz today should be 10-15 feet, could it be better at some dive sites? If you find out by going out, drop me your dive reports. But PLEASE, make good diving decisions out there and the rule of thumb is, if the waves are breaking over your head, viz will be low, let alone not good for entry & exit.

I got a dive report yesterday from Heisler Park. I have to quote one line "Great diving if you have the skills of a navy seal." That really says what it was like yesterday when the surf really came up. John said viz was 2-4 feet, couldn't see the bottom while standing on it. I know there are many experienced divers who try to do a dive, I have no issues with that. But if you want viz, just look at the "Navy Seal" surf. That should help you make good choices. As one of our divers put it, "I can go to the park, throw sand in my gear take it home and clean it and see the same thing I would have seen had I gone diving" great quote Wayne.

Our plans are for Saturday. Stay tuned.

Diving!! DO IT!! Safely...
