One of my favorite local places to dive, and I love the parking lot being right next to the water. I go with a bunch of friends and we make a day out of it. Take our BBQ, set it up beside the picnic tables that are right alongside the parking lot. It is very easy to get around with your gear. No hauling required. Had my best night dive there. Tonnes of crab and shrimp. Only problem with the location is vis is not very good a lot of the time; ok at approx 80 ft diving the Nakaya and very crowded sometimes with new divers which makes vis even worse. I always see something new with each dive and you can always depend on lots of sea life. Overall a very good diving experience.
