It looks like I might be able to squeeze a days diving into our itinerary in mid-July and I'd like to see/photograph some kelp forest.
We were going to go to Monterey but perhaps we'd be better spending a couple of nights at Catalina Island. Is a day trip to the Channel Islands out of Ventura an option ?
My understanding is that bringing my drysuit would be a good idea for Monterey but a rental wetsuit would be OK for Catalina. Is that correct ?
Any suggestions or recommendations ?
