We swam 200 yards to the south and traveled 100 yards North. Every dive I learn...

Yeah Dave and Alex had a 5-10 minute dive, entered on the south of the boat ramp, and exited at the stairs by saltys!


A good reminder to all who dive Redondo - keep an eye on the tidal exchange. A big ebb can cause the 'Redondo River' to get flowing pretty well.

The Redondo River is our affectionate name for a tidal current that sweeps northward along shore at Redondo. It can make diving impractical and potentially unsafe.

Be careful out there...

Beautiful lumpy pictures - and the green penpoint gunnel with red behind it is way cool!

Great seeing everybody there on Thursday. Nice snaps Bob!

Here were a few of my captures. I was surprised to see quite a few green penpoint gunnels out and about!

Hope everyone is having a great weekend!

You got out just in time Bob. The Redondo River hit right after you exited.

Well, the vis was basically clear and the lumpies were out. Found four last night ... two of them were pretty big (for lumpies ... which means about the size of a bumblebee) ...

Hello some of you might remember me. I have checked with the HR department and have been authorized to come diving with you.

Is this a 1 or 2 dive meet and is anyone able to meet earlier?
