The 3R’s (Rocks, Rips and Reefs) is a series of sessions designed to orient new and update experienced divers to site specific shore based diving conditions and safe practices for popular local dive sites.
Conducted by certified Los Angeles County Scuba Instructors, the Rocks, Rips and Reefs sessions include a short educational overview covering the local dive site bathymetry, shore based entries and exits, certain aspects of the local marine environment, and other valuable, site-specific information.
Conditions permitting, the seminar is followed by an in-water demonstration and practice session that includes a skin diving tour of the actual dive site.
THIS IS A FREE PUBLIC SERVICE AND THERE IS NO CHARGE FOR ATTENDING ANY OF THE SESSIONS. (Participants are responsible for any parking fees at each location.)
