Dive-a-Thon Update

July 21 2009; 12:37am

The last few days have taken us from the sandy shallow waters of La Jolla Shores, to the caves and shallow reefs of La Jolla Cove, to the surge-laden waters off Cardiff State Beach - all in search of new things to photograph, and to log 1,627 minutes underwater since July first.

Despite warnings of Humboldt Squid (Dosidicus gigas) in the area, we’ve checked out several great new locations, so keep checking back on this site for updated pictures and reports!

In the meantime, please help us support the San Diego Oceans Foundation, and our Dive-a-Thon campaign to raise funds for ocean awareness programs for children.

We’d also like to take a minute to thank the guys at North County Scuba Center - they’re providing all of the air for our dives! Also, we had the opportunity to do some diving in La Jolla with the kind folks at APS Mantaray, who provided us with fins that we’ll be using throughout the rest of the Dive-a-Thon. Many thanks!
