Casino Point is one of the most popular dive sites off Santa Catalina Island and Southern California, for that matter. The site is accessible via the stairway, the water is calm, and visibility is decent to great (5-30 meters/15-100 feet).

The site features several small wrecks such as the Kist Met wreck and the Sue-Jac wreck. The underwater landscape is also defined by many boulders, outcroppings, rock walls, pinnacles, but also a sandy bottom.

Representative for this area is the fastest growing plant in the world – the giant kelp. Among the kelp, you’ll find fish such as banded guitarfish, garibaldi, halibut, blacksmith, sheepshead, seniorita fish, kelp bass, as well as angel sharks.

The average dive depth at Casino Point is 15 meters/50 feet and the maximum depth is 29 meters/95 feet, which makes this site suitable for divers of all levels.
