Today's Conditions Near Crystal Cove

Today I went our early this morning to spear near crystal cove. Vis was crap and the ocean was choppy. Baby seal snuck up on me and scared the piss out of me lol. Ran into Newport 54 from this site and one of his buddies. Had a good time even though we couldn't see anything.

Also used the Mako Yamamoto 5mm wetsuit for the first time today and absolutely loved it. It kept me so warm to the point to where I had to let some water in to cool myself down. Very comfortable and a very reasonable price. I am not a big guy either at 5'9 140 and the ML size fit me like a glove. Would totally recommend!!!

Re: Today's Conditions Near Crystal Cove

Today's conditions were not all that great with viz maybe pushing 15ft in some places, but around 10ft 99% of the time. There was also a pretty noticeable surge that kicked up all the sediment making the viz even worse in some places. There were some dolphins out there this morning so that made up for the conditions

Re: Today's Conditions Near Crystal Cove

J_Murphy - I'm wanting to dive Crystal Cove today / Tomorrow despite the recent swell. You plan on jumping in? I'm from RI and I'm only in town for this weekend. I brought all my own gear but I'm looking for some guidance for a shore dive.

Re: Today's Conditions Near Crystal Cove

Just went out today to abalone point. Vis was bad on the way out. At the kelp vis was about 7-10, clearer on the bottom. It was a rough day for me, but my partner was fine. The wind swell was pretty bad and it was choppy the whole time.

I also noticed there was a lot more kelp than I remember seeing the last time I came out here a few months ago.

Re: Today's Conditions Near Crystal Cove

I hit up south laguna today and the viz actually was not that bad...about 10-15ft in some spots..I went around 1 when it was high tide..The south swell is supposed to hit on sunday so Im guessing that the viz will be pretty shitty then but hey, I might be wrong

As for tomorrow I think it should be pretty much the same so I might drop the spear for a day and go to shaws cove for a little underwater scenic observation..If anyone goes out on sunday or monday please post up how it was
