I took these pictures of a green abalone on the second dive of last Saturdays Sea Divers to the back side of San Clemente Island. I was in about 45 feet of water when these were taken.
The first two are definitely of a green abalone (Haliotis fulgens), which was almost seven inches long, the last I think is a green, but might be a pink. It was hard to tell because of its location and the kelp, it was about five inches.
