Dive Site - Picnic Beach

Picnic Beach is among the top-ten dive sites in Laguna Beach. This cove is located next door to another great dive site known as Diver's Cove. Here, you will find scattered rocks and a reef system that runs parallel to the shore line. 

Use caution when entering and exiting the water. There is a life guard stand at this location, so make sure you ask the lifeguard about the water conditions before you enter the water (if they are present). They are there for your safety and well being while conducting in-water activities! For added safety, make sure you have a Surface Marker Buoy (SMB), a knife and an underwater light to check out the little critters hiding among the reef! 

This location is in the Marine Protected Area. It is a no-take area, meaning that you cannot take anything out of the water. So, no hunting here!

At this location, you will find Sheephead, Garibaldi, Senoritas, Bat Rays, Sand Bass, Sculpin and much, much more!
