My buddy Brandon and I planned an early morning beach dive to Old Marine Land only to find half a dozen other divers in the water and a few others crawling out. I can't believe how early these guys get out there! Went to the beach to check things out and see what side the beach would have been best for diving. The word was NEITHER! Divers that were in the water for fewer than 5 minutes were back out again. It was reported that the visibility was below 3 feet and the surge was extremely strong. With our ladies in tow, we headed out towards Redondo Beach to see if things were going better. Arrived at Vet's Park and the word was that diving was okay! We found the visibility was decent, 15' at best. No surge and truly easy entry and exit from the surf… There's not that much life on the sandy bottom, but if you lost your scuba pro fin strap, we saw it at about 45'.
