Here' a little secret I know, I may be the only one left who knows this.
I lived in Oxnard California for 35 years and was certified as a NAUI scuba diver at age 16, one of my dive partners was a young Navy guy who
stationed at Pt Mugu.
We would dive off the Pt Mugu pier often (Pier is no longer there) shown below, that's Mugu Rock in the background:
One day he told me a Old retired Navy officer had told him about how the Navy would train dolphins and seals for underwater demolitions at the point,
commonly known as "Officers Beach" Shown Below:
and that they had a underwater habitat located about 75 yards off the the end of the pier which the divers used to rest in while training the dolphins
and seals. Using Google Earth I've located the view of the underwater Habitat for those who may like to visit the site.
I've visited the Habitat about 4 times, it's in about 30 feet of water, it sits on a huge cement block with 4 steel legs and a small ladder leading
up inside, it's about 6 foot diameter cylindrical in shape about 12 feet long with plexiglass domes located on each end.. the sad part is because of
it's age it leaked and was flooded.
We had tied a Para cord line from the last pier piling to the habitat but I'm sure that has long since disappeared.
So to anyone who wants to visit I say go for it, it's a fun dive experience.
