3/28/10- Did two shore dives; first out to the island to the west, and the second out toward the island to the south of the small point. Long surface swim to the west island. I preferred the dive at the south island where we followed a buoy line down to about 80' and followed the black rock wall around the island. There were big Chimney sponges, lots of crinoids, a cool grunt sculpin, a juvenile Yelloweye Rockfish, Copper Rockfish, rose stars, grey brittle stars, various sculpins, tiny red flabellina slugs, and lots of evidence of octopuses, but didn't see one. Very dark at depth due to tannin layer at surface. Honey Bucket is still there, but no other facilities. Not a bad current but viz was bad to west (<7') and better at south (20'+).
