This is one of our favorite dive destinations. Farnsworth Bank lies off of the “Wild Side” of Catalina Island. The bank rises from deep surrounding waters to within 60’ of the surface. Farnsworth Bank is in a Marine Protected area and is the home to an abundance of marine life, including Purple Hydrocoral.
