    Need some help with a shark ID...

    I wish I had a picture, but I don't. My sincere apologies. We dove at Crescent Bay this morning. Visibility was pretty typical... maybe 15 feet at best. While in a fairly open part of the shallow area of the reef, depth of around 25 feet, a 6-foot shark zoomed out of the gloom, chasing a few...

    This guy cruised past us at Crescent Bay

    Mom and I were diving at Crescent Bay a couple weeks ago. This little guy cruised past us at a depth of about 30 feet. I wanted to share because it's the first mola I've seen... anywhere... but also because I've read that molas grow to between 4 and 8 feet in "height". This guy was about 2 feet...

    AA just cancelled my flight to Coz 7/28

    Just got an email from AA. We had planned and booked our trip to Coz, for 7/28 to 8/5, months before the coronavirus became an issue, and I've been holding on to hope that it could still happen. But AA just cancelled our flight there on July 28, the afternoon flight from DFW to CZM. I'll look...

    Current water temp in Coz?

    I'm getting ready to pack my bags, flying into Cozumel this Wednesday. Was debating over which wetsuit to bring and thought it would just make sense to ask those of you that are there right now... what's the water temp? Thanks! Edit: I just checked Christi's website and it shows 81 F. I was...

    Is the silicone part of the Look 2 mask replaceable?

    I'm aiming this question at any AL rep. I use the Look 2 mask because I'm nearsighted and the prescription lenses available for the Look 2 is the best system I've found to deal with it. I have four Look 2 masks (why so many? don't ask... but I like them.) Three of them have clear (or at least...

    "Diver Attention Symbol" on D6i

    I have been using a D4 for 7 years and it's been great. I recently bought a new D6i and thought I'd wear both for a week of diving to see how they compared. I assumed they used similar algorithms and should match almost exactly. But unfortunately the D6i didn't live up to expectations. I made...

    Sealife DC1400 camera, Rock Quarry, Catalina Island on April 26, 2015

    My mom lost her almost-new Sealife DC1400 camera today at the Rock Quarry site at Catalina Island (near Two Harbors.) I know it's a long shot, but if you happen to find it I'll make it worth your effort to get it back to her. We were at about 70 feet, in the sand. Thanks for looking...

    Lost or stolen? Crescent Bay North, Laguna Beach

    I was taking my OW class for two dives yesterday (Sat Nov 22) at Crescent Bay, had a line with weight belt anchor and SMB as a float attached in the sand near the reef. It was sitting in place for our first dive, still there when we exited the water. We switched tanks, entered for our second...

    Weight pouch with 9 lbs at Crescent Bay, Laguna Beach

    One of my students lost a weight pouch at Crescent Bay (north) on Saturday Oct 4th. We think it might have dropped post-dive while we were floating at the surface, so it could be in the sand somewhere. It's a big (double) Aqualung surelock pouch. I'll gladly pay a reward if anyone can find it...

    Are hydros really necessary?

    I live, dive and teach scuba in southern California, but I like to get away a couple times a year to warmer water. I'm in Florida right now and spent this morning diving with a shop that will remain nameless, because the purpose of this post is not to call anyone out. I have been led to believe...

    100 foot measuring tape at Crescent Bay (Laguna Beach)

    Found a 100 ft measuring tape at Crescent Bay, with accessories attached, last Monday. It was free-floating, looked as if it had been used for a navigation exercise and then taken away by the swell. Let me know if it's yours and we'll figure out how to get it back to you.

    FOUND!! Atomic splitfin at Shaw's Cove

    Before posting this I took a glance at the forum... "lost lost lost..." Quite a bummer, but I felt a glimmer of hope that I could post a FOUND. I was at Shaw's Cove today with some students and found an Atomic splitfin sitting in the reef. I brought it home, but I'd really like to find it's...

    Taking GPS coordinates of a site... captain's permission?

    A couple years ago I was on a dive boat in St Thomas. We had stopped there for the day on a cruise ship, and we booked our dives with a company that ran a small six-pack boat (instead of the 40-person cattle boat that usually services the ships.) As we arrived at our first site, I pulled a GPS...

    Lost and Found: wetsuit at Catalina dive park June 28

    Late in the afternoon yesterday my wetsuit was hanging on the wall near the steps at the dive park. Apparently there was a very similar wetsuit also hanging on the wall. When I went to pack, my wetsuit was gone and the other wetsuit was still there. I waited until everyone had left, no one...
