Shaw’s Cove 7:00pm(Night Dive)
Event Date Wed, January 18, 2012 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM
Event Location 134 Wave St, Laguna Beach, CA
Contact Information RSVP Here


Conditions Expected: Surf- 0.5-1ft, High tide at 6:41 pm

About 100 feet from shore, there is a long, 6 ft wide trench that leads all the way to the other side of the reef (east to west). The entrance of the trench is an underwater arch that gives divers the impression that they have entered a cave. About half way through, the trench splits into a Y. One leads to the middle of the reef, the other to the northern side of the reef.

This trench is accessible only when conditions are calm, otherwise water pushes through at high speed, making it unsafe to enter (sea urchins are everywhere along the walls and on the bottom). The water here is not deep - even at high tide the depth is only 20 feet.
On any given dive you can see a lobsters, eels, rays, octopus, garibaldi, calico bass, Kellet’s welks, tree fish, small sheepshead, bat stars, and lots of purple sea urchins and ocassional seals
