Hey buddies, I just finished Divemaster training in Phuket, Thailand and will be in Southern California with my gear. I hope to do a couple of dives either from the beach or boat. I would like to end with a wreck dive. I need a buddy to dive with!

When do you fly home? Timing might make a difference if you can dive Sat or Sun or both?

I was hoping you were flying on Monday. There was a chance I could dive Sunday afternoon. Depending on your flight time on Sunday you need to be careful what time you dive on Saturday. I am unfortunately out for Saturday. I might be up for a late afternoon shore dive Friday after work. But my best advice to get the most bang for your buck while you are out here would be to sign up on one of the Saturday charters heading to Catalina or the other channel islands. That way you can get at least three dives in at different sites with predictably good conditions. If you go to this site: californiadiveboats.com You will get a list of MANY boats and links to their websites. If you know where you will be staying I can further recommend my favorite boats to you. You can e-mail me direct at richard4ster@gmail.com. If a boat is not an option and you don’t mind shore diving on Saturday, I can most likely hook you up with our local group which has someone diving every weekend of the year.

If you REALLY want to do a wreck dive while you are here I suggest you look up the San Diego boats like the Marissa, Humbolt and Lois Ann. Wreck Alley sports some really fun wrecks and almost guaranteed one of those boats will be going to the Yukon or Ruby-E wrecks on Saturday.

Rich-D-Fish,

Thank you for taking the time to offer so much help. I found a guy to dive with on Friday and Saturday. I will have a full 24 hours off gas time before flying out on Sunday. Hopefully can dive with you sometime. Would stay longer but school starts up on August 4th. Only four more years and can retire from Indiana. I want to join a five club out here.

thanks again! George
