Topes and 7-Gills and Swell Sharks, Oh My!

  • Jun 19, 2014 · 6:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Let's go see the sharks!!!

Sharks are still hanging out at the Cove. Let's go find them!

New to night diving? If you have the training (AOW), then come out. Shallow depths make the Cove a good spot to improve your night skills.

Join us for a one tank dive at the famous La Jolla Cove where we will look for 7-gill, Tope (Soup Fin) and other sharks.  All skill and experience levels can appreciate this dive location. A reef and kelp forest full of life, La Jolla Canyon, caves, sand, grass, sea lions, etc... Shallow depths (40' max) will satisfy the new beginner. Need a buddy? No worries, there is always someone to team up with in our group!

PARKING is free after 6:00 PM and for 2 hours beforehand, so no problem. Since the grass area in front of the rest rooms is closed,  we will be meeting up on the south side of the bathrooms. We may have a Power Scuba sign. If not, just ask for Power Scuba. There is a lot of construction going on, so look around. Don't be shy, just ask for us if you aren't sure.

BRING your camera and at least two lights plus a tank light. We will hit the water about half an hour after we meet. As the days grow longer, we will shift this event back to ensure our dives occur at night, but it's easier to see the sharks with daylight, so we are still keeping this one early.



SEE YOU THERE!!!


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-indicative 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 StatementTherein 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.

For Boat Dives: Any overage (usually less than $50) resulting from our local dive boat trips is put into a dedicated Group Boat Fund. This allows us to make up the difference if we don't completely fill up a future boat charter. No other use is made of this money.

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

    Any Shark sightings? Our dive at the Shores had bat rays, Octopi, and a bunch of the usual suspects. My buddy was already setup at the Shores.

    Hi gang, I am waiting to park right next to the restroom. So unload on the grass, park far if you need and you can store valuables in my car.

    Just got back from out of town trip and out of gas. I'll see everyone next week. :)

    Weiwei, Let me know if everyone is meeting some place after the dive. [masked]

  • Jack D.

    Ends up I will be at the Shores tonight. Have a good dive everyone. The water looks crystal clear from the web cam.

    My hubby is the navigator so not for sure on the heading out. I know we always seem to take a 210 heading in though.

    June 19, 2014

  • Dawna B.

    Yes, we kick out to the North bouy then take a heading a little off of North like (030) to get to the next bouy then turn around and come back in on a 210 heading. That normally gets us right to the stairs. However, my guys usually run low on air and have to surface before we make it all the way in. They are air suckers!

    I still can't clear my right ear after being sick last week and thus must make tomorrow a beach day. Hope to be good by next Thursday! The sharks seem to avoid the open patches between the kelp. Go far out and stay in the kelp.

    June 18, 2014

  • Jessy T.

    So how far out do you have to go to get to the sharks? Is it past the bouy?

    June 18, 2014

  • Dawna B.

    Would love to but we are driving in from Yuma and I have to work till noon.

    June 16, 2014

  • Jens

    If others are interested in doing two tanks, I'm taking the day off. I'd be interested in meeting on the grass for the first dive around 3:30. Anyone? The more the merrier.

    I don't know if we are just lucky or what. This was our second dive of the season. Saw them several times last year. However, only small ones. The one we saw this year was three times the size of the four we saw last year. I think the key is we kick wayyyyyyy out of the cove. and we drop in on them.

    June 12, 2014

  • Dawna B.

    We saw a large 7 gill last Saturday. Hope to see more.

    Was going... Then work called.

      Perhaps you have your priorities mixed up.

      Probably... But as the old cliche goes "Money can't buy happiness, but it buy (dive gear) and that's kind of the same thing."
