Not a good experience. Visibility sucked as did fighting the current (11:30am) wasting all my air trying to get to the first orange buoy. Second dive, had to surface swim for at least 20 minutes to get out to far orange buoy. It shouldn't be that hard. Water was 18'C @ surface & 8'C at depth (40'). Wreck was cool with lots of growth, like white & orange Plumose Anemones. Large number of morning star fish, and sunflower star fish and Ling cods. Nice to have shower there when exiting water to rinse off. But area was packed. I guess I'm a warm water diver at heart.
