Evaluation

*Average:    3.82
This is by far and away my favourite shore dive in BC!!! The area is prone to strong currents (so check your tide tables - approx. Race Passage - 15 min), but the reward is amazing sea life. Tons of colonial ascidians, sponge, lampshells, clown nudibranches, horseshoe sea squirts, cabezons, red Irish lords, giant rock scallops, etc... You can barely see the rocks. The steep wall bottoms out at about 80ft. Viz is never great, but most of the time it's ok...
