I am headed up to Santa Barbara this weekend. I am planning on brining the gear in case it is a good day. Does anyone have any shore dive recommendations for in that area? Thanks

Refugio is pretty cool. And cold this time of year but good viz a lot, it’s name was given to the "cove or canyon" by some spanish explorer Jose Francisco de Ortega because of it’s protections, "the Refuge!" It’s got some cool history, the chumash native indians (probably spelled wrong) traded some sort of shell as money or value, or for traded goods (I think?) The reefs around the point where surfers hang out is nice, kind of shallow area all over there!
