This was my third snorkeling adventure. The trail head off Palos Verdes is a little tough to find at first. Once I took the gradual hike (make sure you take hiking shoes) down to the rocky beach - its every man for himself. No obvious trails, just start working your way through the rocks. I hit the water at 3pm and found the visibility okay about 50 yards offshore. I would recommend hitting this site at low tide… much better visibility.
