Redondo Beach – A Dolphin was found dead and entangled in lines on Wednesday night the 23rd. Reports from the video state the other SCUBA divers that night had seen another dead dolphin at the same site earlier in the week.
Vet’s Park is among the best coast dives in California. There’s considerable parking (provide plenty of groups), bathrooms, water vending machines and clean water showers to wash off following the dive. Redondo Canyon starts very near to shore here, so deep water is just minutes away. Many divers move right from the steps next to the toilets and soon you are parallel to the end of the pier. Dropping down here can put you in a matter of several kicks of the drop-off. Depths vary from 0-40 feet in the shallows to well beyond fun diving depths in the canyon. Throughout Winter, squid runs generate mating squid and just about any animal in the food chain follows them. It’s perhaps not unusual to see tens and thousands of mating squid throughout. Blue sharks, bat rays, sea lions and big Sheep crabs can be seen here. South of the canyon could be the Topaz Street jetty. This is often a successful seafood position occasionally. The conditions at Vet’s are often much better than sites just a couple hundred yards south. Smooth surf could be the norm here, therefore exit and entry is rather simple.
Located at the intersection of Pearl Street and Esplanade, the parking lot at Veteran’s Park has considerable metered spaces. Steps to the beach are observed at the Southwest conclusion of the lot.
