Kelp Beds



Features

Boulder Pile / Shelves, Kelp Forest

Description

There are three large reef sections, marked respectively by kelp typically viewable from the surface. The reef extends about 200yards long and equally as far into the channel. They start about 50 off shore and range from 20-40 deep. Enter the water from the wooden staircase at the end of Deer Creek Rd. and head up current into the reef. Due to the constant current a healthy variety of life can be found, especially on the outer edge of the reef, where you can expect to see lobster, sea bass, sheephead, opaleye, and rockfish among the kelp and invertebrate dotted rocks. The sand may reveal halibut, bat rays, and the typical small sand dwelling sharks.

Special Restrictions:

Potential current hazard. Please check the weather when planning your dive. This site is exposed to southern swell, but the Channel Islands block much of the northern pacific storms.

How to get there:

Located at the intersection of Hwy 1 and Deer Creek Rd. Limited parking can be found along the southbound side of Hwy 1.
