Santa Barbara Island
Scuba diving at Santa Barbara Island
is always a treat and the main reason most divers like to go there is because of the seals and sea lions at the Rookery, off the island’s southeast side. They can be fun to watch spinning and twirling just like acrobats. They will also swim at you and then turn at the last possible moment as they blow bubbles at you. Then between Webster (the island’s westernmost area) and Arch Points (its northernmost area) is Elephant Seal Cove where you can almost always see sea lions. At the southwest side of Santa Barbara is Sutil Island which is basically a 300 feet high rock.
Santa Catalina Island
Scuba diving at Santa Catalina Island is a favorite destination for divers of all skill levels. The “front side” is the leeward (sheltered side) of the island and offers some of the best water clarity (30′ to 100’+) and the best diving conditions in Southern California. Currents are generally mild and there’s always a calm and clear site to dive. Because of this Catalina Island is the most dived island of all the Channel Islands. With large kelp beds, a variety of life, Black Sea bass, bat rays, fish, seals, invertebrate life, rocky reefs, pinnacles and walls, it offers something for everyone
