Trip Highlights

There are many excellent dive sites around Santa Barbara Island. The main reason most divers like to go there is because of the seals and sea lions at the Rookery, off the island’s southeast side. They can be fun to watch spinning and twirling just like acrobats. Santa Barbara Island also has some very beautiful shallow and deep reefs lush with kelp and underwater arches. Some of the really good sites are Sea Lion Wall, Sutil Island, Shag Rock, Webster’s point plus many more. There is much to see and do for the photographer, sightseer and hunter so why not come out and join us!
