Dive Sites Southern California

With any dive site, you should check the conditions online prior to diving and then visually check them once you are at the location.  While we will try to keep this list updated, please note that hours, parking, closures, etc may be different than listed.  Diving is inherently risky, please use good judgment on every dive.
