Redondo Canyon drops a few thousand feet deep as it lays along the west side of Palos Verdes. The prevailing Westerly currents sweep cold, nutrient-rich water along the south side of the peninsula. These nutrients feed the healthy reefs offshore at Pt. Vicente, Buchanan's Reef and the main reef at Marineland. The current then sweeps offshore, where it brings food and animals to the deep shipwrecks. The reef at Marineland(Long Point)is the only reef on the peninsula with so much life that is accessible from shore. I have seen everything from whales to lobster, close to two dozen different species of nudibranchs, submerged platform and a nice shipwreck, sea lions, Harbor seals, abalone, Black Seabass and Thresher sharks there. I would rather dive at Marineland than Catalina any day.
