LA: Mega Malibu on the Magician Sept. 14, Boarding on the 13

Postby Brianne Billups » Thu Jun 27, 2013 11:41 am

Hey folks, we recently received word that Malibu Divers has generously donated funds to help cover part of the charter fees for this trip. Isn't that amazing news? Please join me in thanking Malibu Divers for their support!

This day is Mega Fun! Come out and explore the beautiful coast of Malibu while Reef Checking!

Our plan is to survey FOUR amazing Malibu sites: Leo Carillo, Lachuza, Paradise Cove, and Big Rock on Saturday September 14th. This is a fun day - a great way to see four totally different sites, connect with other Reef Checkers and enjoy a day doing boat dives.

The plan is to board the Magician at their dock in San Pedro between 8:30 pm and 12:00 am on Friday September 13th. Directions can be found at their website here: http://magicianscuba.com/directions.htm We will then transit overnight and wake up ready to dive at Leo Carillo first thing in the morning. We will make our way down the Malibu coast, surveying at each spot as we head back to port. After our last dive, and while we head back to the dock, we will be treated to a BBQ dinner, including tri-tip (always my favorite meal after a long day of diving!) We will aim to be back to the harbor by around 6 pm, but of course that depends on conditions, etc.

For those of you who are new to the Magician, it's a very comfortable boat with a fantastic crew and excellent food. We used them last year for this trip and it worked out very well.

Some trip details:

*All meals are included (breakfast, lunch, BBQ dinner, snacks and drinks) and the food is great on the Magician!

*You will need to bring your own tank - the boat DOES NOT PROVIDE TANKS. The crew will fill tanks between dives. Bring all your scuba gear, including weights.

*Bring all your survey gear, sunscreen and warm layers. We'll bring plenty of data sheets and spare parts!

*Prepare to get some serious work done and also have a lot of fun exploring this awesome stretch of coastline!

As we have a lot of work to do in one day, it's crucial we have a large team of divers to help accomplish our goals. Don't miss this unique opportunity to dive some different sites!

Suggested Donation:
Reef Check is striving to use our resources wisely. To help support the program, it is suggested that RCCA divers on boat charters may help defray the cost of supplies and boat costs by making a $30 donation to Reef Check - but really, any amount helps support the cause if you are able to do so. However, Reef Check will never turn away divers that either can't or choose not to donate. If you are interested, you can donate online by checking this link: http://www.reefcheck.org/login.php Sign up today, spots fill up quickly!

QUICK UPDATE ON JULY 11, 2013
Since it's a long day with a lot of work, we'll need at least a total of 12 people checked out on fish for this trip. This should help make sure we can spread out all the fish surveys to our team so it's not just a couple of people doing all the fish counts. I've reserved a few spaces for people who are currently checked out on fish and I'll adjust the list as people sign up.





The team:
1. Colleen - Fish
2. Jennifer G
3. Owen L. - fish
4. Sarah
5. Ron W - fish
6. Edie - fish
7. Connie - fish
8. Ron S

Hey guys,
So glad we've gotten so much interest! This is always a memorable trip!

Since it's a long day with a lot of work, we'll need at least a total of 12 people checked out on fish for this trip.

I'm excited so many of you can make it!
