This web site is basically for a few purposes. If you are visiting California
and want to know where to dive and what to expect, this should tell you in
detail. If you like to read about diving, this is an excellent collection of
dive stories by myself and many others who have contributed stories from
California and around the world. If you
want to find out anything about California Diving, it should be in here
somewhere. There are a number of photo galleries as well. Most of all, this
site is to celebrate the fun, beauty and wonder of diving.
There is more below, including local useful links, photo galleries, a complete California Coastal Diving Guide and far more information about California diving.

The California Diving Links page is a very complete list of links to ocean weather sites, California Diving Web Sites, some Diving Retailers and various California Park or Marine Services. It also contains links to other sites that have dive stories. The other link page points to some of the fantastic diving beyond the California horizon.

With eight offshore islands and about 1000 miles of shoreline, there is an
awful lot of diving available. The cool nutrient rich waters produce a
lushness of life matched almost no where else. It is some of the best
diving in the world.
One other thing about California Diving. When cold water diving, you do not have to be quite as careful of the bottom life as in the warm water. Coral is incredibly fragile. Algae is among the fastest growing plants in the world. It is never good to be careless about it, but pulling along the bottom by grabbing rocks or kelp holdfasts, does minimal damage in the colder waters and allows the diver a completely different way to move through the reef. Often the diver ends up in places that are actually too confined for really swimming.
Some people know the spots. You have to be a gutsy diver to go where this guy goes.
While I am trying for the most accurate stories I can get, some may sound pretty incredible. That is why they are in here though. That is why we dive too. When diving, sometimes we are lucky enough to see the incredible.
I hope that you enjoy reading this.
