Coral Reef, Anacapa Island, Southern California.

Schooling Yellowtail, 30 ft of water.


Much of the diving in Anacapa is shallow, but at Coral reef you can get down to over 100ft. Coral reef is actually a series of large reefs separated by sand, and covered with brittle stars. There are also small kelp forests in the central, shallower parts of the reef.

Coral reef lies off the southwest end of anacapa. The last time I dove here a school of yellowtail swam by me twice, passing very close by. It was my first time seeing yellowtail in California waters in over 350 dives. There are a wide variety of fish here, and even a moray eel can be found here. Coral reef is defintely worth more than 1 dive to explore. And its hard to find a better dive site for photography than here.


Blue Brittle Star. This color is rare.
