Incredible site, great drift/wall dive. The whole wall is carpeted in anemones. Fish abound, from small rock fish to huge ling cod. Some people have encountered Orca's here, and I've seen them swim just off the point. There are more species of invertebrates than I can name. Wolf-eels and octopi round out the animals here. You could dive this dive 100 times and not see everything. The only downside is that you MUST hit this dive at slack, preferably during a small tidal exchange. If hitting this dive during a large tidal exchange you only have a 10-20 minute window with low current.
