Does this water look like have divable visiability?

The above video is from my last fishing trip, near Pillar Point.  One of my objectives in learning to dive, is to spear fish from time to time during these fishing trips (especially when I lose a big one).

Are you able to look at that surface water and tell me whether at 30' down or 50' down it has suitable condition for spearfishing? Thanks.

if it looks that clear from the top chances are its diveable. the only way to know for sure is to get wet.
Divers go deeper, and stay down longer

Well what I look for is water color and clarity and the swell. Minmal sweel means little serg, and baiscally what brandon said. you never know if it is going to have fish till you get and start diving.
