Yellowbanks Reef is a large extensive area on the southeast side of Santa Cruz past Smugglers Cove. Yellowbanks has large kelp beds and equally large reefs. The reefs are a variety of different types. Some are parallel reefs with sand between them, some are low lying rocky reefs and others are large rocky outcroppings with small walls. With the entire good reef structure there is much to see such as fish, lobsters and lots of small invertebrates. Depths can range from 40'-80' and visibility can be 20'- 50'. This trip is good for intermediate divers and above. Possible currents and surface signal device recommended.
