Enjoyed Saturday's dive so much I returned to Laguna with Frank on Sunday morning to do it again. Surface conditions were nearly identical, although the marine layer was a little thicker and the swell seemed to pick up just a bit. Underwater the viz had dropped somewhat, there was surge on the upper part of the reef which stirred up the particulate matter. Frank and I debated the viz and settled on 10-15'.

Once again the return of the kelp just made the dive so great. We followed our favorite route, dropped down atop the West pinnacle, kicked along the West edge to the Canyon, farther out to the Island, and then East towards the Thumb. From the Thumb we pushed Eastward to an area I hadn't visited before and found an isolated pinnacle separate from any other reef structure. I love these isolated features; a distinct world all onto their own.

Divemetrics: 64 mins, 48', 54F
