One more picture from local Southern California dive. Diving in tropical water is nice, but I just love diving in the California coast. We don't have the colorful soft corals and the water is cold, but when the lighting is just right the kelp forest offers a breathtaking sight. This is from last spring at Anacapa.
The remote location of Socorro Island is synonymous with big fish action, particularly manta rays, varieties of sharks (hammerheads, silkies, oceanic whitetips, silvertips, Galapagos sharks, tiger sharks and whale sharks), pods of pelagic dolphins and humpback whales. Located 291 miles south of Cabo San Lucas, this surreal destination is considered to be the sister island of Galapagos.
