When weather or currents make scuba diving at more exposed sites difficult, Catalina Island and Martini are usually still calm and accessible. Fortunately, these sheltered sites are also some of the best in-shore scuba diving sites in San Carlos. The marine life here is plentiful and diverse, and the walls and boulders make for fantastic night dives.
