Catalina Island is a short boat trip from the L.A. area in California. And well-worth diving! The water is clear (if a little cold) and where we dove, rich with marine life. Dive entry is literally by stairs. We dove with Ron Moore's Dive Catalina.
If we were to return, however, we would probably not dive Casino Point: there was an overabundance of divers in a fairly small area.
