Cates Park is an easy dive for beginners and those with a keen eye. There is not much variety in the life, but there is some unique life if you take the time to look for it. You can find Bay Pipefish, Moon Snails, and a good variety of crabs and fish. The nice thing in the winter time, for wetsuit divers, is that the washrooms are heated and the locals are not picky about divers in them, not like other sites. This is a nice pinic area in the summer for BBQ's in between dives.
