Went to Malaga Cove with Southcoast divers due to a storm off the coast of Baja. This group usually dives Laguna area. I personally entered and exited over the rocks but a few chose to go to the beach and enter and exit. The viz was 10 to 25 feet depending on the bottom. The kelp beds were great and full of life schools of fish. octopus and lobster. It is not deep about 25 to 30 so bottom times were hour plus. The day was great and a good dive was had by all. The hill is doable but take your time.
