First time to Point Lobos and it was fantastic. This was my 10th dive and is by far the best dive yet. Visibility was around 50' and the colors were amazing and the life was abundant. Kelp forest was awe inspiring. Surface swam into the sand channel and descended. Took a 30 degrees heading to some granite walls and returned on a reciprocal heading. Water temp was 50 degrees, so be prepared. I was OK in my 7mm one piece but my buddy had a 7mm farmer john rental that had zippers on the legs. Those zippers would not stay shut and she got very cold.
