Goldfish Bowl is a very popular site on Anacapa Island and a common destination for operators to take new divers to, as the shallow calm water is well suited to those with less dive experience.

The site gets its name from the numerous garibaldi here. Garibaldi are a bright orange fish which tends to be very curious and comfortable interacting with divers. The fish is named after a 19th century Italian general who wore an orange vest into battle. It is the California State Marine Fish and is a protected species.
