An extremely easy dive. At low tide it is difficult to exceed 20 foot depth. The bottom is covered in leaf kelp, otherwise it is soft and sandy. No current to speak of. Also an easy snorkel site with an abundance of crabs and eel grass and kelp loving critters. Could make an interesting photography dive, there are several variety of gunnel which will pose for a photo if approached carefully. Because of the shallow depth it would be easy to get hour long dives at this location. Enjoy a picnic lunch on the beach during your surface interval.
