Evaluation

*Average:    3.44
Good news, bad news; this is a great site but if the resort is busy there will be a sign up near the entrance saying "No shore diving". There is a wall at the right height for slipping into your BC, but if that entry is busy waddle up to the right and there is another pool you can jump into and then swim out. The shallows are beat up by the surf but you will find peacock flounder, squid and trunkfish all looking for dinner. There is also a resident octopus living in a ball of chain. At about the 28' line you start finding sponges, fans and anemones. As you get deeper there is more life. Straight out from the entry is a landing craft and to its right is the mermaid. The Atlantis sub visits both so if you hear whining be prepared to entertain the pod people. Be careful, this whole reef is under the mooring field for Sunset House's fleet and right next to their dock. There are three ladders to get out, but two I wouldn't go near in a surge.
