The sea lion harrassing the shark caught my attention (like sparrows to a hawk) and a lucky moment was captured. Neither of my buddies was aware of the GWS, but both saw the sea lion. Fun day.

This very friendly harbor Seal stayed with us for most of the dive, constantly wanting to play with us, pull on our flippers, and get right in our faces.

Friendly Harbor Seal

This cute Harbor Seal dives with us every time we go. I think she knows us now. She is very curious and friendly.

I again used the Intova sport Pro video camera. We arrived on Saturday at 7:45 AM and were met with a line of cars entering the park. This is one of the most popular and beautiful sites in Monterey, so always make reservations and arrive early on the week-end. The diving is hard to beat. Easy entry, mostly calm water, wonder views and lots of places underwater to explore. We had two great dive and enjoyed lunch afterwards. I made the music Irish, since so much of Monterey waters and life is green

Pt. Lobos is always a fun place to dive, and that's especially true mid-week. It's less crowded and reservations are usually not required.This is two dives combined into one video.There were six of us diving, and I was trying out my video light with a diffuser, which worked great. The Intova Sport 1080P video camera worked perfectly too. We had a little surge to contend with and the vis varied, but both dives were great. Below 30 feet the vis was better, but we were often between 27-34 feet. The water temp. was 51 degrees, and it was overcast all day.

We did a two tank dive, reaching depths from 32-47 feet for 35-43 minutes. Water temp. was 54-56 degrees, and we had some surge. We found a great place to dive; we believe it's called "Middle Reef." Vis 15-20 feet.
