#349972 Diving Catalina, a couple of questions

Posted by gsk3 on 07 July 2014 - 04:48 PM

You'll likely be fine on the Express.  Have never had a problem being slightly over, and half the boat is divers.  That said, it's been a few years since I did it last (tend to take boats out of Long Beach these days to hit the islands).


As I recall, the hand truck was a schlep but there were plenty of them.  Golf cart seemed convenient as I was pulling a few hundred pounds in a cart in the hot sun, but probably good for my heart :-)


Enjoy, it's a beautiful location.


Check out the LAUE Ghost Fishing Project's footage of their cleanup of the Infidel if you want to see what it looks like at 150' just a (long) stone's throw from the casino at Avalon.

Just want to say that these are fabulous first attempts at UW shooting.  Even with topside photo experience most don't get this good in their first few dives with a camera.
