I've been diving off Venice Beach several times in the past year, mostly because of its proximity to home, cost of diving (free), and ease of the dive. There is a fair sized reef about 1/4 mile offshore that is home to several hard and soft corals, crabs, snails, shrimp, and various reef fish. Fossilized shark teeth are everywhere, but I've never found one larger than an inch and a half. Maximum depth I've had was 22 feet (high tide) and visibility has generally ranged from five to ten feet. All in all, this is a great dive and is perfect for beginners or intermediates. It would make a great night dive, and it's a great Sunday afternoon dive when you just want to get in the water.
