Dive Recap - Divers: Marco, Ken, Rochelle, Bottom Time: 20 minutes Depth: 41 ft, Surf: Occasional 5 - 6 ft! Temp: Warm, Vizability: 10-12 ft at bottom below thick layer of red tide. Due to a lost article got separated and practiced navigation back to shore. Very strong current going West on the bottom. Strangely the surface current was going east which flattened the kelp and made locating deadmans more difficulty.
