Description

An interesting and normally calm dive location. There is a very large tide pool practically filling the cove right in front of the parking lot near the water. There is one break in the rocks that allows access to the water. You will have to traverse some sharp, rocky shore to get there though which can be hard on the feet.

At the entry point, there are some warm water vents marked by white algae. The extensive reef extends in both directions for nearly a mile is full of thick kelp. The outer edge of the reef is about 40’ deep and nearly ˝ mile off shore. Among the reef and kelp you’ll find lots of sea bass, opaleye and perch.

Special Restrictions:

Potential for current and surf. The water is usually very calm, especially in the summer. You can see from the cliffs above the site if it is diveable or not before paying the fee to access the road to the water.

How to get there:

White Point Park is located on a bend of W Paseo Del Mar between the intersection of S Western Ave and a baseball field to the southeast. Check surface conditions from the vantage point above the park. If calm, follow the small road on the right of the parking lot to the water.
