    Easy with a drysuit and the right undergarments. Not as easy wet... and the dives tend to be shorter and fewer per day.

    I love my drysuit.

    If you're SoCal, I dove the Kelp in Lajolla a few times. September temps were 58f. It was a good dive spot stayed shallow for the most time at about 40'

    ... as well as the "Sand Dollar" (we did the two day live aboard trip). This boat had more divers on it, but I Loved the dive spots.
    I agree.

    If you are making an effort to come out to California to dive, you probably want to do more than just one or two days of diving. I have really enjoyed my trips on Truth Aquatics - About Us boat the Vision. I've been on 3 of their "Limited Load" trips with the 4th one coming this September.

    Point Lobos in Monterey area is a really nice place for Kelp diving from shore. In Summer kelp is really abundant.

    If you fancy a long haul holiday, Tasmania has got some awesome kelp forests.

    Monterey, kelp type threads arent too active. More divers should try this kind of diving. Some sites give me the effect of flying around a jungle and over hills.
