A Santa Barbara man drowned Friday while scuba diving off Anacapa Island, authorities said.

John G. Koenig, 65, was diving around 1 p.m. on the north side near Cathedral Cove when other divers found one of his fins. A frantic search followed, and Koenig was found on the ocean floor, about 27 feet deep, said Craig Stevens, senior deputy Ventura County medical examiner.

“The regulator was out of his mouth and he was lying there unresponsive,” Stevens said.
