We heard reports of 30-40 feet vis on the Avalon wreck yesterday and 60 feet on the landing craft off Malaga Cove. Once again, our hopes were dashed by our curse of bad conditions. We arrived at the bow of the Avalon to find a green haze of 15-18 feet. We looked around the nearby rocks but didn't find many nudibranchs. Merry managed to get a couple of nice shots while I shot mediocre video.


We decided to head around to the south side of Palos Verdes to look for cleaner water. All we found was more of the same.
There was a strong current at Buchanan's Reef and Long Point. We went back to the Marineland Platform for nudibranch hunting. Visibility here was about eight feet. Temps were about 53F at both sites. We'll try our luck again after this week's rains.
