About a 1/2 off Moss Street in Laguna Beach is "Miller's Reef." It was unofficially named by the locals in honor of the diver who fist discovered in about fifty years ago and because he was one who regularly dove it to harvest it's bountiful supply of fish, shell fish and rare shells. After the passage of fifty plus years the name has remained it is still refereed to as "Miller's" or "Miller's Reef."

According to Schekler's book published by CDN it is seldom dove because it is simply to far for the modern diver to swim and locate...(but not for the old timer who discovered it and dove it with out the modern diving accoutrements

There is a cove in PV that has been dove frequently and popularized by one diver to make it a popular with many of the current divers, The Marineland Cove. Over the years it has had a number of names, Portuguese bend, Portuguese bend club, after Marineland was constructed in 1954 it acquired the name Marineland pier, Marineland Cove, Marineland, Old marineland, now Terranea Resort! Some how "Terranea Resort" is inappropriate

It is time for another name change...One that will honor one who in this modern diving world, one who has continually dove the area and one who has unselfishly continually popularized the area---Max bottom time

Perhaps Max bottom time cove?
Max's cove?
Bottom time cove?

The surfer's have renamed numerous popular spots ...

why not the divers who visit the underwater world?
