Catalina Island is the Caribbean of the West Coast. Nearly every day the visibility extends past 60 feet into the depths below. Casino Point consists of a dive trail that leads hundreds of divers every week along a path of the California state fish, the Garibaldi, a wide array of other sea creatures and large, looming kelp forests. The trail is only about 40 feet at its deepest, so it is a popular spot for beginners and dive classes. If you want more advanced, less crowded diving, dive at the reef, just about 1000 feet from the Point, or at the Isthmus (aka Two Harbors, the other city on the Island). All in all, however, the diving at Catalina is superb.
