For me, dive spots are rarely familiar for a few reasons, the first being that
I always like to go to new spots. I'll pretty much always choose a new spot over
somewhere I have been before. My rule is to look for the spot that I figure no
one else would have gone to.
Also I tend to look at small stuff more than large so even when I am at a spot I
have gone to before it may not look familiar. I rarely look at features of the reef.
I look at features of the rocks.
Then again there are places like Eagles Reef where I can't very well not know my
way around. Hit the top of the reef. Go to down 40 feet, turn left for about 60
feet. Head down to 80. Look around. Head back to the shelf at 40. Go half way
around the reef. Move up and down 15 feet through the rocks for the rest of the
way around the reef.
Really though, I prefer it all to be a complete surprise. That's why I like just jumping in in the middle of no where that I have never been before. That's probably why I have liked the North Coast so much.
Enjoy the diving, seahunt
