Description

Landing Cove is quite similar to nearby Cathedral Cove, a popular dive site located .25 miles to the west. If you find Cathedral Cove occupied then you may want to move over to Landing Cove for diving solace. Enter the water inside the cove a and explore the rocky reefs, kelp, caves and archways to depths ranging from 10í to about 50í and search for large calico bass, lobster, and abalone (but donítí take them, it is a marine preserve!). Common fish encountered include the ever present garibaldi, senorita wrass, sheephead, opaleye and perch.

Special Restrictions:

The cove is typically protected from weather and conditions tend to be mild, although there may be some surge in the shallows.

How to get there:

Landing Cove is located on the Northern side of East Anacapa Island, in about the middle of the island and .25 miles to the east of Cathedral Cove. It is a protected cove with some large rock formations protruding from the water at the entrance of the cove.

As with all dive sites at Anacapa Island, you will need a boat to access them. It is recommended that you select a local charter from Santa Barbara, Ventura, or other local charter that offers service to Anacapa Island. Anacapa Island is more protected from storms and thus tends to offer clearer, warmer water than the other islands in the northern Channel Islands, making it an ideal, and reliable, charter destination especially for visitors, less experienced divers and snorkelers.
