    Isolated from the other dive sites around Catalina Island, Church Rock is often less crowded than the other local spots. Just 150 yards of the southern side of Santa Catalina Island, church rock is exposed to both the south and west swells. Though it is often subject to severe current and surge, this beautiful little reef can be visited by anyone on a calm day. Just beneath the surface in the middle of the reef, a ring of boilers surrounds a sheltered area. Here, divers can explore tunnels and can find lobster and moray eels in their holes. Just of to the side of the reef, long strands of feather boa kelp sway in the current. This area makes an exciting place to snorkel as divers will encounter thick patches of coralline algae, anemones, and sponges.
