The giant kelp, swaying in the current like wind, eel grass flowing back and forth, giant sea fans, bat rays, blacksmith, huge sheep head and more...definitely and amazing place to dive.
Wide angle is a must at this spot, i used my Tokina 10-17 and my Nikon D300, YS 250 strobes....Actually my first outing with the strobes and i was very pleased!
This area is great for macro too, next time your headed for Anacapa, request the west end/rat rock area and good luck!.

Catalina has a wonderful variety of socal marine life, with everything from nudibranchs to moray eels, giant sea bass, angel sharks and bat rays to huge schools of fish, purple hydrocoral, gorgonians, and lots of giant kelp... and the front side is almost always diveable: http://www.uwphotographyguide.com/catalina-island-underwater

By boat, I'd have to say Farnsworth Banks. Unbelievable.

Also the marine life is magnificent. I was able to explore sheep crabs, kelp fish and sea lions in my last dive. It’s a great experience.
Also don’t forget to explore wrecked plane and a few sunken ships around the island.
