Great dive site, easy parking, short walk down some stairs to the beach, but the entry is rocky and a little slippery. You can either go right out of the bay towards 10 Mile Point or to the left along a rocky shoreline. We chose left as novice divers because 10 Mile Point is notorious for current, although we dove close to slack tide. We read that going right has more life but wow the left was pretty spectacular anyway! So many different crabs, starfish, and fish, we swam through 'neighborhoods' of giant sea anenomies then huge Purple Sea Urchins, saw several nudibranches and tons of Sea Cucumbers. Relatively good visibility and almost no current as we stayed near the shore.
