First - great report & photos. Good job especially on the giant kelpfish - they can (barely) be photographed with a SLR, but near impossible with a camera with any shutter lag; they just keep moving, moving, moving through the kelp. I get nothing but blurry kelpfish tail photos.
Regarding the Jobin canal - can you imagine the currents that would rip through there!!! Yeeehaaaaa! - you'd have the ride of your life on a drift dive. Actually, there was a time when Catalina was split into two islands at Two Harbors. You can see ancient shoreline terraces on many parts of our local islands - evidence of much warmer (and wetter) times on our lovely blue dot in space. On the east end of San Clemente at least two distinct terraces are easily visible - one 100-150ft above sea leavel, and another about 150ft higher. Be sure to look for the terraces next time you're out there.
