Good morning Divers!!!
Welcome those new to our list of local OC divers. Just show up for a Saturday dive and you will have plenty of others to dive with. Welcome aboard.

Current diving conditions in Laguna Beach. The S swell disappeared over the w/e and surf dropping down to what we need for diving, but the viz, that still wasn't good over the w/e. Today, the surf is still running 1-3+ feet as I write this, but it is improving. Viz should be improving too, 10-12 feet today, could be better at some spots, so choose your site with good observations of the dive site. If you head out, send me your dive reports.

Our plans are for Saturday. So far so good, let's see how it pans out. Stay tuned to SCD for more.

Quick note about the opening of Lobster season, over the w/e. Keep an eye on your air & NDL and (Oh yea), you need to hunt outside of Laguna Beach since Laguna is protected from any take. Have a good safe lobster hunt, no matter where you go. Make sure you fill out your lobster card before your dive. I was amazed at the recent DFW fines for 2 guys who were taking Abalone, $61K each. The DFW is not messing around with fines like that, know the DFW laws.

Diving!! DO IT!! Safely...
