Dove this site and found it to be very challenging. The bottom drops off sharply and continues to over three hundred fathoms. Lots of silt run off from local streams so vis is sketchy on the North side of the dive. Some interesting tid bits of history to be found for the patient diver. Little life but still a very good dive for advanced and technical divers. Large bone bed (from ships dumping kitchen waste during the early 1900's). I Highly recommend this dive to technical divers looking for a local challenge!
