I actually lived in the Redondo Beach area which is So Cal prime on the water for several years and then bought my own boat for diving and ended up living on it for a couple of years. I dove quite often on the Palos Verdes bluffs so the 25 give or take a bit is where your referring to. That was how I unwound after a days work, untied it and left the harbor usually by myself. I either went south down the bluffs or out looking for flotsum. It was a really neat time for me, I was single after my second wife passed so it was a part of my bucket list so to speek.
