08/21/2011 Colin I (Avg: 3.76 Review) - Simple dive to get in the water. Easy with no one around, you have the site to you and your buddy.

03/09/2003 Anonymous (Avg: 3.00 Review) - Average dive, pretty shallow though. Nice little undercuts and crevices in the wall. That's where most of the life is. Use a light to see the colourful coating of sponges in these little "caves". Visibility can be pretty bad, especially when the weather's been rough.

11/19/2002 Bryan Heit (Avg: 2.63 Review) - Boring. Lots of lettuce-like kelp. Few crabs and sea stars is all you'll see. Max depth, 30' at high tide. Great for beginners, boring for anyone else.
