Night dive at Marine Street

  • Marine Street

    300 Marine Street, La Jolla, CA (map)

    32.836888 -117.280670

  • We will meet at the top of the stairs
  •  

    In water time will be 6pm

    Who's up for a night dive?  If you are properly licensed and equipped, you can go lobster hunting as well.  If not, please feel free to join us for a great night dive!  You dont have to dive for lobsters!

    WHERE: Marine Street...NOT to be confused with Marine Room.  Should be some parking available near the steps leading to shore.

    This will be a one-tank dive.  Hope to see you there! If you need to contact me call my cell- [masked]

     

    SPECIAL CONSIDERATIONS FOR NIGHT DIVING

    Please bring a primary dive light, a backup dive light, and a glow-stick or equivalent to tie to your first stage.

    Be sure that your batteries are fully charged and that your lights are properly secured to your gear.  After the dive if you'd like to take a nap, I can tell you the story, from long ago, of the time when my primary light ran out of juice, I'd lost my backup light while separated from my buddy, and I was low on air.  Hint: Don't do that.

    Never been on a night dive before?  It is recommended to have experience at a dive site during daylight hours before venturing out at night, so if you're already familiar with this dive site and you're diving with a buddy who has been night diving before, you'll be well-prepared.

     

    SPECIAL CONSIDERATIONS FOR LOBSTER DIVING

    You MUST have the following items with you if you plan to take California spiny lobster:

    1. California Fishing License
    2. Ocean Enhancement
    3. Lobster Report Card*
    4. Lobster Gauge
    5. Lobster Catch Bag
    6. A suitable container to take lobster home in

    *Law required you to fill out the Lobster Report Card before you get wet.  Marine Street is in zone 25.

    If you aren't properly licensed, you can't hunt--you can only observe.  Probably best to pair up with another non-hunting diver.

    If you've never been lobster diving before (raises hand), try to pair up with an experienced lobster diver for a briefing.

    POACHERS (those who break any laws governing the take of lobsters) WILL BE SUMMARILY BANNED FROM THE GROUP AND TURNED IN TO FISH & GAME FOR PROSECUTION. POACHING/LAWBREAKING WILL NOT BE TOLERATED.

     

    NOTE: Lobster are currently considered an extremely sustainable species (unlike most of our fish stocks), which is why we participate.

    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 condition possibly 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.

    Sorry guys! I went by Marine st this morning and the beach is closed due to pollution from the storm drain! Plus the waves are about 5'. Keep a look out though. I will be rescheduling this for next week!

    Hey if you guys still end up going, be on the lookout for a blue mask and snorkel (it's a prescription mask) and a black dive light with a lobster gauge. I lost them this morning in the surf.

    The surf at Marine Street can be extremely dangerous due to the topography so PLEASE be careful.

      Not at all! When I plagiarized Raleigh's description of the Cove for my meetups there, I meant it as a compliment, and that's how I see this too. You should have seen my double-take though. :) "What the... OH!"

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.
