Jeff from Huntington Beach CA | Scuba Diver

UPDATED 01/03/2023
2022 was a successful year of returning to the ocean as I completed 24 logged beach dives throughout Laguna Beach, CA and Vet’s Park, Redondo Beach, CA. Always looking for more dive buddies to get out an explore the local reefs around SoCal.


UPDATED 12/24/2021
I have been out of the water since 2013 and ready to get back in and go under. Looking to start exploring the local SoCal (Orange County, CA) area again as I regain and rebuild my skills again.


I am a SoCal diver certified as a PADI Master Diver. I`ve been diving for almost 9yrs. and have over 500 dives logged. I mostly do beach dives in the OC area, but also enjoy doing boat dives to Catalina and the other islands, along with making trips to San Diego and LA Counties to dive. If anyone is up for a beach dive in Laguna drop me a line. I also do a lot of night dives after work during the week. I am the Beach Dive Coordinator for the S. OC Dive Club (SOCDC) and lead dives each Saturday at 9am. Feel free to drop me a line and I can give you the details.

See you in the water!!!

Over the past year you may have also seen me in the news around the globe for going to Disneyland EVERY DAY. It started out as a simple challenge with a friend, but so far has turned into a normal "fun" routine and I am still going daily. As of today, Jan 06, 2015, I have now been 1,102 consecutive days. So if anyone is around or planning to visit drop me a note and perhaps we can hit some rides. #Disney366

Hi Jeff,

I am headed into Dana Point in June and I am looking for a buddy to dive with me on the 26th. Unfortunately that is my only free day. If you could accommodate or know someone else who could please drop me a message or call.

Much obliged...

Hey New Dive Buddy!!! I live in Vancouver, BC, Canada and most of my dives have been at Whytecliff Marine Park in West Vancouver, BC. I love Kelvin Grove (in Lions Bay, West Vancouver) also.

I’m itching to travel south for some warmer water dives...would i need to bring my dry suit to your area for April or May?

I WISH! I got an ear infection so I’m out of the water at least through the end of next week! =(

Yes, just out to Catalina last weekend and this weekend diving at

Corona Del Mar. I did the Chamber Day Dive - and my boat wasn’t cancelled like the other ones. Did you go to that event?

Thanks.....I’m enjoying my new dive sweatshirt! Enjoyed the egg hunt.

ah, the tough questions! honestly, i suppose tropical appeals to me the most, but i’m open to all sorts of diving. i just found out my cousin dives, and he goes to some quarry in upstate new york - seems kind of odd to dive in a quarry, no?

is there a particular kind you would recommend? i was supposed to do my cert dives in fiji, but my trip got cancelled, but i was told fiji was like "swimming around in a giant bowl of fruit loops." must say, that hasn’t lost its appeal. . . imagining. . .

A few of us are planning to dive Laguna, but next door at Crescent/Deadmans. Reason being that myself and buddy Dave are both bringing our young daughters to play on the beach during our dives (my dad will watch) and we need a beach with a bathroom. The egg hunt does sound like fun though. Where can I go to get more info on time, etc? Who knows, maybe we’ll join the hunt through the arch.... You’re welcome to join us or play with your eggs ;-) We’re planning our first dive around 10ish as I have a long drive and need to haul the beach toys down first. "IF" I can even find parking.

Awesome, thanks for the welcome message! I’m excited to get to know some divers!
