Seriously though, there are alot of Giribaldi at Catalina, and they are pretty bold, will swim right up to you, and sometimes nibble at you to get you to go away. Seemed like everwhere I went, another one was swimming up to me.

Its not legal to collect abalone while scuba diving anymore, although it is still legal to collect them while free diving.

Eight people died last year in California while free diving for abalone
Male Garibaldi are very territorial. They have about a 10 by 10 area that is theirs and no one else's. I have been nibbled on a few times by those angry orange fish. You can't do anything though. It's a $500.00 fine for catching or killing one. It used to be $1,000.00. When I was in high school a guy got caught with 16 of them in his boat. He spent some time in the pokey.

All my dives at Catalina, the oil rigs, and a couple of wrecks have been on the Sun Diver. My next trip out there with Scuba Views will be March 6 & 7.

Camera was the Sea & Sea DX-1G with dual stobes. I'm still getting used to it, but my underwater pics keep getting better.
My bad, I see you already posted it was the "SunDiver" boat.
Looks like your getting the hang of your camera for sure. Nice pics.
