There is no real reason to do this dive unless you're after crab, but it is a great place to go crabbing. Here the issue isn't finding legal-sized crabs, rather it's finding ones small enough to fit in your crab bag! Aside from that there isn't much too see. The bottom is sandy, so this may be a good area for practice diving. A lot of boaters come in close to shore here (to crab and fish), so a flag is a good idea.
