Comments:
Swam out 200 yards off shore to kelp bed and dropped down. There is a very nice reef in closer as well which we saw on the return trip. Sand bottom drops off sharply about 15 feet from waters edge (mid chest to over head.) Saw a nice octopus and several crabs. Nice dive but the visibility and slight surge made it an OK dive. We called the dive early due to boredom. Still, we had fun and it beat sitting around the house.
