Re: Crystal Cove

Hey Guys,
I am sorry to crash in on this thread, but I had a couple of questions about Crystal Cove. I am a New England Diver typically hunting Stripers, Black Sea Bass, Tautog, etc and I have a Huntington Beach trip (not dive focused) planned in a few weeks. All of my research on the diving directs me to CC. Is this a good time of year to dive? Im not asking for specific spots, I am really just concerned with weather or not I should bring all my gear. Any help is greatly appreciated.

-Dylan

Re: Crystal Cove

CC is over rated (but still good). Most all year is a good time to dive in Southern California (It's typically sunny all day, every day). Look up the weather, swells, and tides on surfline. Here's a link

http://www.surfline.com/surf-report/...ifornia_46525/

I suggest finding any place with 1-2 ft swells during an incoming tide for safety and good water clarity. There are nearby locations on the right hand side of the page. Some spots have live cameras. How far out and at what depths are you planning to go? I'm just a noob so I don't go out too far unless there's another method of transport (like a kayak or jet ski/boat) in case there's ever that one in a million chance of a shark encounter in more open water.

Lately, the water near Strands Beach has been heavenly clear. Bring all your gear. Most folks use a 5mm suit around here. Generally, if you are looking to spear a "sport" fish, go somewhere with kelp (I suggest some serious transport... like a boat). If you just want to see any fish like perch, access from the shore to places with a little rocky cover is good.

OC Spearos FTW!

PM if you'd possibly like to go out together.

Thank you so much man. This is all great info. I may be in touch for a dive. I will be there from Friday mid day through monday. When I dive here in the NE I have a stringer off my float. Are sharks a real threat inshore there? That may be an ignorant question. Do I need a method to keep my fish out of the water?

thanks again,
Dylan

Re: Crystal Cove

Does anybody know decent kayak launch areas around CC? I've only been a few times and seems like an extremely long trek.

Try the Morro day parking lot past the campgrounds. Not too bad of a walk from there
