    Dive Dry With Dr. Bill #686: Night And Day... You Are The "one"

    I never paid enough attention to the female sheepheads while night diving. If I were to ever do SoCal dives again in the future, I'll make sure to do night dives and look for these camouflage discolorations on the female sheepheads.

    Sport Chalet To Cease Operations And Close All Locations

    I feel bad for the dive charters that work with Sport Chalet. Like it or not, Sport Chalet put a lot of students on those boats.

    Oh puh-leeze with the noble savage deal. American Indians have been known to run bisons off cliffs before civilization came to them.

    Any Guided Dives To See Kelp, Seals, Etc..

    There are spots are Santa Barbara Island and Anacapa Islands which are sea lion rookeries. However there's no guarantee that these spots are diveable at any moment. Mother Nature has a lot to say about where we can go. Seals are a lot rarer to see.

    Open Water Dives to Complete Certification? (DESPERATE!)

    Or do the referral checkout OW dives on the trip. I'm sure that the vacation dive shops do a lot of these referrals.

    Open Water Dives to Complete Certification? (DESPERATE!)

    Why not talk with your shop instructor(s) to do shore dives for both of your husband and son? There's nothing that says open water has to be done from a boat. If schedule is tight then two shore dives on Saturday and two shore dives on Sunday then they're done. Assuming that Mother Nature...
