    I won’t lie, the idea of scuba diving is part exciting and part terrifying for me. But it was cool to read your story and the images you included really helped me almost feel like I was there.

    I’ll have to try Abalone sometime!

      Hi Brittaney. Yes, diving can definitely be both at the same time, lol. Abalone really tastes good if done correctly. When it is not done right it is like trying to chew a rubber band, lol, not very appetizing. Thanks for stopping by and I am glad u enjoyed the story.

    To be honest I’ve never tried that but it looks really fun honestly. What’s the best place to look for them though? Genuinely curious, you may have inspired me haha

      Hi Jasmere. Abalone diving is a lot of fun. You will generally find abalone in the shallower waters along rocky shorelines. They like to get down in between the rocks, so you won’t find them on coral reefs for example but rocky bottoms. You also will find them in kelp beds too. The deepest I have gone for abalone I think is only about 30 feet or so but generally, they are in shallower waters. I am glad u stopped by and I hope to see u in the water soon.

    I did not realize they were that tight to the rocks! I am defiantly going to try and remove a couple on my next dive. Did you collect them in a case or a bag for taking back to shore?

      Hi Kody. Yes, they can really stick sometimes, especially if you mess up trying the first time to get them off. They can then really glue themselves down, lol. I just use a net bag to collect them in, works great. U need to make sure they are the right size before you pull them though. There are legal rules in place for what you can harvest. I hope you enjoy your next dive and I wish u well. Thanks for stopping by.
