Farnsworth Banks, Catalina, September 2013 Deep Blue

Farnsworth Banks is a gem of a dive on the back side of Catalina.  It’s got amazingly purple hydrocorals and larger than normal fish everywhere.  It’s a deep dive with usually heavy current so only Advanced Divers can. Yeah, the dive site delivered! We said it was one of the best dive sites in Southern California and conditions supported that. 


Here's what Tunille (one of the divers on the trip) said about Farnsworth:  

"The most beautiful California dive I've ever done."  That sums it up rather nicely, don’t you think?

After the first dive conditions started to change (as they're apt to do at Farnsworth) so the boat moved to the leeward side of the island where it was safer, but the first dive topped many lists!

See you there next time!
