I got certified in summer of 2008. I started taking pictures underwater to help me remember what I saw on my dives so I can write them down in my dive log. Since then, I've upgraded my camera from a small point and shoot camera to a mirrorless camera with interchangeable lens. Some people want to see the big things like sharks and sea turtles. I delight in looking for small creatures underwater, especially nudibranchs. There are so much colors under the sea!
Trip Report: Catalina Vacation House Dive and Eco Adventure
March 1, 2020
Our President's Day weekend adventure started in the afternoon of February 15th. It was smooth sailing from San Pedro Harbor to Two Harbors, Catalina Island.
The condition during this trip was amazing - the sea was flat like glass, the visibility was amazing, and the water was warm. On Sunday, the freedivers reached their target depth or better, and then on Monday they surpassed their record from Sunday. While the freedivers were taking their class, the scuba divers went on beach dives. Since the conditions were so nice and the dive was mostly shallow, the dives were nearly an hour long (or longer for some of us...) and saw a variety of marine life. Three days on the Island seemed short, but we managed to go on a couple of hikes during our stay. We did one longer hike on Sunday afternoon to a spot where we can see both the frontside and backside of the Island. The view was breathtaking.
We had a lot of fun diving, hiking, and hanging out. Does this sound like a trip you would like to join? We will host another Two Harbors adventure on October 16 to 18!
