I have dove at D & E both day and night before. In general, they are both great when conditions are right. Both shallow dives, 10-40ft, viz 10-20ft but I have seen bad day with 3ft before. We sometime swim past the outter reef to get to 40-50ft looking for surprises like seals or dolphins (and praying not sharks lol). I have seen 2 dolphins passing the inner reef of D, 10ft away from me, before too. Check out the link "more info" in the event description for marine life and other things about E.

The differences: E is more commonly dove b/c free parking on PCH. It’s rocky entry with pointy rocks that can cut relatively sharp. Dive at high tide AND low surf only. Long walk to facility at C. D is less common b/c you have to pay $12 to get in or very very long walk from PCH. Sandy beach entry, a little less viz compared to E, but larger reef that goes deeper and more abundant marine life.

According to CA State Park website, fishing is allowed at Leo Carrillo.
