|OML Long Point 3/16|

I met up with Angelique and Jimmy at OML this morning. It was cloudy and overcast AGAIN!!. However, as we started to walk down the trail, the sun started to break through the clouds and clear the mist away.
This time, the waves hitting the point were looking do-able so we went for an easy (Ha Ha) entry at the point. We all timed it perfectly with no issues. I have to say that when the waves were 2-3 this place is no walk in the park. To get caught inside and dragged across the rocks can ruin ones day.
We gathered at the point about 30 yards out and dropped down into so so visibility.
I can not tell you enough how this place is one of the, if not the best places to shore dive in SoCal. The rock structures are way cool and the diversity is awesome. Here, there were tons of fish out where last week at the 120 reef, there were barley any.
We were lucky this week, there were lots of Nudis out and we had a fun time searching through all of the rock structures. When we made it to around 65 feet, we decided to make the turn and start heading back to Cobble Beach.
Here are some highlights from the dive.
