Easy dive site, always good parking but the gate closes at 8pm. Walk around a few logs and down the beach, which is soft sinking pebbles wearing all your gear! Sandy bottom with lots of bottom fish and crabs to entertain on your swim out to the little island, which you can easily see from the beach, lots of life at the island, you can swim right around it with enough air to get back. In the spring the kelp growing around the island is thick so you have to peak underneath and wow there's lots under there, probably a better dive in the winter when the kelp dies down. The back side of the island has quite a large bull kelp forest to navigate. The highlight of this dive was an inquisitive harbour seal who played with us for some time. This site also had good visibility which at this time of year can be hard to find.
