La Jennelle Park - Oxnard - Port Hueneme CA

La Jennelle Park is a shore accessible salt water dive site, located in Oxnard - Port Hueneme, CA. This dive site has an average rating of 5.00 out of 5 from 1 scuba divers.

This is a good dive for the adventurers among you! After a long drive through areas you have never been before, you’ll find sandy parking and a rocky entry. But beyond that, you’ll discover some excellent diving for all skill levels.
From Highway 101 near Oxnard, take the Victoria Exit South toward Port Hueneme. Drive 6.7 miles to a stop sign. Turn left onto Roosevelt, which becomes Island View Ave. In 3/4 mile turn right on Sawtelle Ave.
This is one of the best spots for sheep crab that I have been to. Pismo clams are abundant and hefty. I generally get my limit of clams in less than 300 PSI and spend the rest of my tank hitting the jetty. There is good lobster hunting but most are backed up to deep holes and they squirt into the holes pretty quickly. I speared a number of large Cabazon in the area as well. Swell can be a factor when first entering the surf but if you put your gear/fins on upon initial entry, you can power your way through the surf to the backside of the waves. There are still a lot of pieces of the La Jennelle wreck scattered out from the tip of the jetty in the deeper parts of the site.
Excellent local dive, with a vis of about 10ft. Wide variety of gorgonians, some sheep crab (up to 3ft.), a few lobster and an assortment of fish. Not too much to see below 70ft.
Great dive! The fence along the jetty was removed, and there is now access back to the wall on the port side. I have made several dives on both sides of the jetty. The port side is calm, good vis, lots of fish, and rocks, small kelp beds, and sand with sand dollar beds. The depth is 10-20 feet. The ocean side is for more experienced divers. Rocks go down about 30-35 feet, then sand slopes down at a good angle. Lots of gregorians, fish and, Rocks! Could be surgy at times, so watch the waves on the rocks! This site is highly recommended.
