What looked to be a promising weekend of diving got off to a lousy start this morning. The swell models were wrong, thankfully. This morning's prediction was three to five feet swells. These were the surface conditions at Honeymoon Cove.

The water looked green and dirty, but I hoped it was just the surface layer. It wasn't. When we first dived this reef two weeks ago we had the best visibility I have ever seen on a near shore reef off Palos Verdes. Today looked like we had our first heavy rain in springtime. Visibility was a cloudy twelve feet, and most of the animals seemed to be in hiding. We searched for the moray eel Margaret Webb found last week but came up empty.
