Evaluation

*Average:    2.89
I assume this is Redondo Beach, also known as Vet's Park, in Palos Verdes. So, very easy entry from a sandy beach with generally small surf (1-2 ft for our dive). Vis was down after weeks of rain and dredging at the beach. About 10 ft of vis, lots or particulate matter, and almost no current. I saw a few squid egg casings, crabs, flounder. This dive is pretty easy but most of the life is where the submarine canyon starts in 90 feet of water. Conditions are usually good but low vis and depths can make it advanced. Temp was 59 degrees at 80 feet. Very sandy bottom so stay off or you will silt out the vis. They say this dive comes alive at night. Facilities included bathrooms, metered parking lot, rinse showers, a pier with stores and food, and a lifeguard station. Can get busy so arrive early. A lovely beach for the non divers.
