La Jolla Cove Dive-Start the Weekend off early!- TAKE TWO

Meet:4:30

In-water time:5pm

Since it worked out so well last week we are doing it again!!! Everyone is welcome! We will go a one or two tank dive (that's up to you and your buddy) at the ever popular La Jolla Cove!  If you don't have a buddy, don't worry, there will always be someone there to buddy up with...this has NEVER been an issue.  We are a friendly bunch and don't bite unless asked.

Parking can be fairly difficult, so you will probably have to drop your gear and go find a spot....but its worth it!!!...There is a parking garage at the top of the hill.  Usually its $10 to park there. Or you can always hunt for a free parking spot!

The COVE has a wide variety of diving enjoyment opportunities.  Reef, Kelp, and spots of sand here and there make it quite an enjoyable dive spot.  Entry can be an issue, yet we are hoping that mother nature will be kind to us on this day!  There are stairs down to the small beach and entry point is directly ahead from there. FYI--This is a protected reserve-no fishing or taking of any wild life!

If you are lucky you might be able to spot everything from normal Kelp bass to Seven gill sharks.

So come on out and lets enjoy the Cove!!!!


 

ADMIN STUFF YOU MUST READ:

The Virtual Donation Jar is always out (for the Meetup site costs and general fund). It's strictly voluntary, but is very much appreciated and needed: Click here for the DONATION JAR

If you have not submitted a Liability Release for Power Scuba, please follow this link to the file, print, sign, and bring to the event along with your C-Card (scuba certification card). You need to do this at least once a year:  Liability Release and Assumption of Risk

You must also read this: Disclaimer and Clarification... AKA Terms of Service...AKA Terms and Conditions

Anyone with a medical conditionpossibly counter-indicitive to diving must have a doctors signature on a diving waiver form and submit signed form to Bill Powers (or an organizer) before they may attend any Power Scuba event. YOU MAY NOT ATTEND AN EVENT WITH AN UNDISCLOSED MEDICAL CONDITION. Doing so is grounds for expulsion from the group. Here is our medical statement: Medical Statement Therein you'll find a Doctor Waiver form as well.

Attending any scuba event Power Scuba facilitates constitutes attendee's affirmation they are medically fit to dive, certified to dive by a nationally-recognized agency, have the necessary skill & training level for the dive being offered, have read the Terms and Conditions, and have submitted a signed Liability Release to an organizer.

Important Note:It is not the organizer's role to lead your dive (or to wait for you after you come out of the water). He/she merely facilitates you getting to the pre-dive meeting location. The Organizer will not assign you a buddy nor will he/she be leading the dive as a "group dive". Visibility and liability do not allow for that. Nor will the Organizer tell you whether you are skilled enough to make any particular dive. That is for you (only) to decide. When you enter the water, you (and your buddy) are on your own. You must plan and execute your dive with your dive buddy only. Once members arrive at the meeting spot, the Organizer becomes simply another diver.

Power Scuba bears no responsibility or liability for a member's loss (gas, airfare, hotel fees, etc) in the event of a cancelled event.

Your participation constitutes your affirmation you agree to these above rules and disclaimers.... and that your buddy(s) (if applicable) has read and agrees to the same.

    The NWS is saying bad things about the ocean for this weekend, i.e. high surf, rip currents etc. Be interested to hear what you guys see this afternoon.

    Went to La Jolla Cove this morning. Light surf, constant light surge and swells. Visibility in Cove proper (halfway to Buoy A and closer) was 1-2 feet at the bottom. Ascend a few feet and it opened up to 5-10 feet. Visibility at Buoy A was closer to 15 feet. On the surface swim out, I saw a shark underneath me. Couldn't tell if it was a Tope or a Sevengill, but when we descended we couldn't find it. Near the end of the dive, we had an encounter with a Giant Sea Bass right at Buoy A near the top of the canopy. Have a great dive!

    Hey Steve, wish I could make this one but as I work nights I'll be fast asleep by then. I scheduled a morning dive on Friday after I get off work so I'll post a condition report for you guys when we're done!

    I'm 70% sure I can make this. I will need a dive buddy. I'm still a novice, so I'd rather follow than lead.

    Looking for octos and eels in the boulders never gets old.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
