Benefits of El Nino

With the unusual persistence of warm water currents moving by California there is no doubt that we are experiencing the effects of an oncoming El Nino.  While common conditions for the summer months along the central California coast are filled with algal blooms and poor visibility we have been fortunate enough to see one of the best summers for diving in many years.  Along with calm swells the algal bloom as almost been non existent, providing divers that venture into the unknown to be pleasantly surprised with the above average visibility of dives and abundance of life found in the area.  Large numbers of humpback whales have been spotted and some fish that are normally found in southern California such as the Sheepshead have been seen venturing north.  So if you are in the Central or Southern California area now is the time to get in the water because great things are beginning to happen.
