Gull Island is located on the south west side (backside) of Santa Cruz Island. It is a small rock island a little over 1 mile offshore and is in a protected area nowadays. Gull Island has excellent diving all around it with depths ranging from 20'-110' and visibility from 20'-80'.

Gull Island is one of the few spots in California that you can see purple hydro coral at shallow depths (15'-40') and it is in great shape. The diving around Gull Island is rocky reefs with kelp, fish, sea lions and lots of small invertebrates. There are also some outer deep walls close by which make for some exciting diving and the Guardian plane wreck is not far away. This trip is good for intermediate divers and above. Possible currents and surface signal device recommended.
