I have nearly 200 dives at Marineland in Rancho Palos Verdes. I recognize most rocks and can find my way easily there without a compass in terrible vis. I certainly can't call it boring, though. The abundant and varied life there is incredible. I have found as many as 17 different species of nudibranchs on a single dive. Whales swim by close to shore there. Sea lions have used the point as a pupping area. One of then even took a bite out of my elbow. Black Seabass can be seen there on occasion. There are remains of wrecks long past and recent. It has kelp, rocky reefs, mini-walls, sandy plains and even a cave onshore.
