Good morning Divers!!!
Welcome those new to out list of local OC divers. Show up for a scheduled dive and you will have plenty of others to dive with. Welcome aboard.

Current diving conditions in Laguna Beach. The S swell is going to be at it's highest today, the local news media says 3-5 feet, but it's not that high in Laguna, running 2-4 feet today. Viz is suffering at 10 feet and less around Laguna. I was looking back on the tide tables to see if I could see a connection on that day when we had the terrible current at Crescent Bay. I was checking the tidal difference and if the time of high tide was a clue, unfortunately, I did not see a reason for it based on tides, so I'm still digging on that. I do know that people diving at Heisler Park or Shaw's did not have a current, so that issue is related to the shape of Crescent Bay and the reefs around it. But if you go out today, send me a dive report.

Our plans for Saturday will depend on the S swell & the viz. So stay tuned here.

Diving!! DO IT!! Safely...
