If you just want to dive on this vacation, I would suggest the Channel Islands above all else. That's where the best kelp diving is. Catalina is the most tourist-friendly of the Channel Islands with the quaint inns of Avalon, and is just an hour ferry ride away from L.A., Anaheim (Disneyland) or Dana Point. Water temp will be high-50's, unlike Nor Cal which, as Eric S said, will have temps in the low 50's. Eric S is correct, though...if you want to incorporate a lot of topside activities unrelated to diving, the Moneterey/San Francisco area is gorgeous. I would take the Monterey Bay Aquarium over Disneyland any day!! That aquarium is AMAZING!
