To all Scuba Divers and Ocean Lovers traveling to San Diego for this years Comic-Con event, come join the Roddenberry Dive Team for a morning of adventure as we dive the beautiful La Jolla’s Underwater Ecological Preserve. We will be joined by aquarists and scientists from the Birch Aquarium at Scripps. They will talk to us about local marine life, including the elusive leopard sharks we see in the area this time of year. Generally, as scuba divers, we never need an excuse to go diving but in this particular case we’ve joined forces to provide our out-of-town aquatic brethren an unforgettable dive opportunity. RSVP REQUIRED. Click Here to RSVP!
DONUTS & COFFEE
For the early birds; a few of us will be arriving at La Jolla Shores (next to “Kellog Park”) around 6:30am to enjoy the sights and sounds of the ocean as the early morning sun shines onto the majestic pacific. Coffee, juice, yogurt, donuts and muffins will be available. We plan on gathering at one of the beach-side fire-pits for a bit of warmth and camaraderie. (If you have extras chairs and are willing to bring them, please do so for our out of town guests).
DIVING & DISCOVERY
Divers will start suiting up around 7:30am for an early morning dive adventure to tour the La Jolla Underwater Canyon. Once geared-up and ready, we’ll do a surface-swim out about 100 yards to where the depth is approximately 40+ feet. After a final buddy/gear check, we’ll descend to bottom where we’ll continue west to a maximum depth of 100’. From there, each buddy team, while monitoring their depth, time and air, will explore this magnificent underwater realm and gradually work their way east back to the shore.
The La Jolla Shore water temperature ranges from the low 50‘s at depth to the high 60‘s at the surface. 7mm wetsuits or Drysuits are recommended. ALL dive gear (including Tanks &l; Weights) must be brought with you as there will be no rentals available on site. However, gear rental are available prior 7/18/12 from local dive shops. If renting gear, remember to call ahead and reserve your gear and pick it up the day before (7/17/12).
