Good morning Divers!!!

Next week, I'll be teaching an OW class at Catalina and some from the group are going along to dive the Avalon Dive Park. If you would like to go, make
Reservations with Catalina Express out of Long Beach. Phone number is 800-613-1212. We will take the 6am boat out of Long Beach and return on the 2pm boat.
For the return trip, upgrade to the Commodore Lounge. This will get you on the boat first and you will sit upstairs. A drink and snack is offered. Round trip price is
$73.50 and the Commodore Lounge Upgrade for the return trip is $15. For us old folks, the senior price is $66.50.

We canceled the dive because Hurricanes Hillary and Irwin joined forces bringing south swells to Laguna. But they didn't bring high surf yet. In fact two of our
regulars did dive and they said the surf was not big. But visibility did suffer and was only 8-10 feet. The surf was suppose to be as high as 6 feet, so Rich & I
thought it would be best not to dive. I guess the surf reports can be wrong just like the weather reports.

Surf is suppose to increase and peak on Tuesday, then decrease. I'm not sure how high this surf will be after the non event of Hurricanes Hillary and Irwin.

Rich will have more throughout the week.

Diving!! DO IT!! Safely...
