Comments: After last nights poor conditions at Redondo I needed a good dive to make things right. Yesterday's reports from Marineland had 15 feet visibility. It was at least double that today. I found the usual assortment of nudibranchs on the main reef. Several octopus were out of their dens, enjoying the great conditions. A small Lingcod followed me around like a puppy for several minutes. I had never seen one do that before. When I reached the cove after an hour and a half it was like a swiming pool. I could see the sand and kelp for well over thirty feet and I wished I had brought more tanks with me.
The topside conditions were great as well.
The water along the shore was looking pretty Catalinaish.
