The boat was closer to 300yards off the shore of San Clemente, (not 2 miles). The diver surfaced about one hundred yards from the boat, signaled a large "ok", and swam to the boat a zodiac was at standby at boat if he needed it. Swimming around kelp that was floating on the surface, also of note their was no ocean current or swells water was a nice 69°F. He got caught on kelp a few times and had the extra drag swimming. Another diver out free diving helped him out of the kelp and the boat sent out a ring and this free diver helped him get the ring… he was unconscious when he reached the boat towed in from the ring.
