    Great story and makes me want to take a trip back home to Huntington Beach, hunt him down and see if I can go check out his little seahorse village.

    Thanks for sharing.

    Definitely cool. I've only seen one seahorse in SoCal waters and that was right in our local dive park. It was "gone" the next day.

    In the distant past they were often encountered in the warm months along the break water to the harbors
    Hitch-hikers from afar
    I suspect others have come along and populate the harbor break water -- a place that is now seldom dove

    Neat. Was in touch with him last year but never had a chance to actually dive with him.

    Sent Rog a note letting him know. =)

    This was a super cool article. I saw a seahorse once at the Mauna Kea Beach Hotel, of all places, but it was dead. Sounds like very challenging diving, though.
