Watch: Underwater off Diver's Cove

Journey to another world.

Certain videos are impossible to resist clicking on: Sleeping kittens. Surprise military family reunions. Dumb teenage boys getting walloped in the crotch with blunt objects.

Off south OC beaches, we have diving videos.

Like this one, shot several days ago off the oh-so-appropriately-named Diver's Cove and posted by YouTuber koyote1111. It's 8 minutes of total bliss-out.

Note the lobster stare-down at the 3-minute mark, and the confrontation with the lobster street gang at 5:38 ... those li'l dudes look like they're about to shank somebody ...

Oh, by the way ... does anyone know the scoop on the freaky coffin on the ocean floor at Deadman's Reef?

Got to get my dive gear out. Thanks for sharing.

Nice footage. Glad to see the diversity. But OMG, the sea urchins are everywhere. Indication of how much worse our water quality has gotten over the years since I started diving there.

GREAT video, thanks for posting this! My wife and I dived at Diver's Cove the weekend after we met. The visibility wasn't nearly as good as what is seen in this video, but it's good to know that all the sea urchins and Garibaldi are still so abundant. Time to dig out the wetsuit...
