Evaluation

*Average:    3.80
Possibly Victoria's best unknown dive site with good diving at slack and shore access drift dives. Definitively for experienced (20+ dives) since the variable speeds will have an effect. Right in front of the entry point is great at slack for all kinds of sculpins, even the odd Cabazon, with lots of sea animals and vegetation. For those looking to fly though, the drift is the option for you. The most you want to depart in about 1.5 knots, as it can reach up 6.0 to 7.0 knots during high winter exchanges in my knowledge. Great fun with a big group, but parking is limited. Another option is to drift all the way from Spring Bay to the Ten Mile exit point. Entry and Exit points take some navigating, though, but good fun.
