Evaluation

*Average:    4.18
Diver Stairs = glorious unheated fresh water rinse shower at top of diver stairs = wonderful wrecks and diver amusement devices (artificial reef 'junk') = worked wonders fish abound There was a bit of a current on surface for second dive... easily mitigated by taking a bearing and hitting the bottom... I do not run out of air so prefer to bottom swim my surface swims whenever possible. Some seriously FAT and conceited Lingcod on this site... especially on (surprise surprise??) the BIG wreck. Only saw an arm of a G.P.Octopus. He was holed up tight, but those suckers were the size of $1 coins or better.... All in all, well laid out marine park with A-1 facilities nicely without much of the typical contrivance you find at some 'scuba parks' …IMHO
