You can rent gear in Avalon on Catalina (wetsuits, regs, tanks, etc.).
As Dorothy would say, "this isn't Coz, Toto!" so be prepared for some cold and kelp. But you will be rewarded with excellent sea life.
For a first time visit, I'd recommend the dive park at Avalon - you'll see nearly everything there and the entry is super easy via some concrete stairs. Usually lots of classes there on weekends, but is pretty empty other days. There is an airfill station there - its at the 'casino', also a nice hamburger place nearby between dives to warm you up.
