On Saturday June 21 I went with the Sea Divers aboard the Magician to Catalina.

Our first dive was at the deep pinnacle near Johnson Rock which is know for having many nudibranchs. The water was very warm in the mid 60s and did not drop into the high 50s until I got below 100 feet. It was below that thermocline where I found the nudibranchs.
