Long Beach Breakwater

#1 - Long Beach Breakwater

USA, California, LA County

Lobsters some crab and small fish. Kelp at the top of the breakwall, deep silt at the bottom. Recommended that you leave someone onboard the boat while diving, as the silt doesn't hold the anchor in moderate wind. Dive flag required due to heavy boat traffic. The Los Angeles Federal breakwater at Angel's Gate (Los Angeles Harbor) is also nice. Lots of lobster in the rocks, but not as many nudibranchs as the Long Beach breakwater at Queen's Gate (Long Beach Harbor) Long Beach Harbor Entrance

#2 - UB88

USA, California, LA County

UB88 was a WWI German submarine sunk after the war in 1921 Approx six miles off Pt. Fermin.
