We started out this morning leaving the dock at 7:00 AM – the water in the harbor was silky calm, as we passed the LA light it became a little more choppy but not bad. As we made our away across the channel a light fog lifted and you could see the island in the distance, another beautiful start to a great day.
We arrived at the island at 9:30 and anchored at Doctor’s Cove and set the anchor at about 50 ft. We had two open water classes on board and six certified divers. Visibility was about 30 ft and the water temperature was about 66*F, it really warmed up from last week’s temperatures. The classes did their first two dives at this spot. After the second dive we had another great lunch prepared by Chef Christy – BBQ’ed burgers on the back deck with all the trimmings in the Galley.
We moved for our third dive and anchored in 50 ft in Little Geiger Cove. The visibility there was much better at about 50 ft and the water temperature was the same. All the students finished their certification – Congratulations all new certified divers. A special “thank you” to instructors Lisa Jover, Shawn Haight and Ann Marie McCann for bringing your classes out on the Cee Ray, we hope you enjoyed your day!
As we started home we had fresh out of the oven baked brownies with ice cream, homemade chocolate chip cookies and snacks.
Thank you Sport Chalet for another great day of diving & “thank you” to all of the divers who joined us.
We’re looking forward to another great weekend of diving on August 28th & 29th. Don’t forget we also have an OPEN BOAT on September 5th – for more information contact Capt Kim at 562-505-6505.
