    Hello from San Diego

    Greetings from San Diego!
    I am Robert, and I am advanced open-water certified through Padi.
    Diving in San Diego is not as interesting as say, Hawaii, or Australia.
    It certainly is much colder! (I do own a drysuit for such conditions).
    I enjoy photography, so I have a scuba case for my camera.
    :-)

    I have heard that diving the Channel Islands is wonderful.
    However, when I went to the Channel Islands, it was for lobster hunting, and well, I didn't get to see a lot of beauty on that trip.
    (For some reason, Lobsters don't like clear water).

    Welcome.

    There's some great diving in San Diego... I'm closer to the Channel Islands (you should really try a non-hunting trip, btw), but you're closer to Wreck Alley. It's a tradeoff. LOL

    It gets cold when diving the HMS Yukon.
    Because of how cold I got, I bought a drysuit!

    One time, when going on a kayak trip about the Channel Islands, our ferry came into a bay with really great clarity. I mean, you can see straight down to the sand, of I'd say about 30 feet deep. I wanted my scuba gear right then, and there, to jump into this tranquil forest of kelp.
