New series of marine parks creates an almost unbroken chain of protected ocean from Mexico to Oregon
California just opened several new state parks, but you may need scuba gear to visit them. They're underwater. The new parks include a massive kelp forest off the coast of La Jolla, coral reefs around Catalina Island, and an underwater canyon near Malibu. In total, there are about three dozen new protected marine areas in Southern California where scuba diving, kayaking, and surfing are encouraged but fishing is either tightly restricted or prohibited altogether.
