Conditions Expected: The forecast has been changing every other day so highly recommend you check this before going: but it should be 2-3 ft surf, High Tide at 11:31 AM.

Dive Site: 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.What you’ll see: On any given dive you can see a lobsters, eels, rays, octopus, garibaldi, calico bass, Kellet’s welks, tree fish, giant sheepshead, bat stars, and lots of purple sea urchins. The Shelly of Shaw statue is between 35-37ft
Site Facilities: none, only at Crescent (site North of shaws) showers, restroom, drinking fountain.
Dive shop Laguna Sea Sports is right down the street.

Emergency Contact Information: Laguna Fire Department (949) 497-0700

it is anthony. we’ll (javy, marco, and i) will be there a little earlier. they’re taking me on a cold water intro. after they’re finished with that, they’ll probably head to crescent to dive deadman’s, or stick around at shaw’s.

I will not be participating at this one though I will be around there. I will be taking out a diver on cold water intro with Javy.
Should be pretty decent conditions. Feels so go to go back in the water after almost a month.
