Evaluation

*Average:    4.19
Just got back from a trip to GC. Did 12 shore dives in total. I dove Anchor point as my second shore dive one morning. There is a very narrow dirt road that leads directly to an entrance point (right before Barefoot Beach) where you can park your car. From there is only a 25 yard walk. Booties are advisable but not absolutely necessary. I didn't wear them and was fine but my feet are fairly tough from years of running. There are a few entry points. I chose one off to the left since the leading entrance has some breakers hitting it. The entry and surface swim were definitely not the easiest so be careful. I personally felt that Babylon was a good bit easier (if you use the lesser known of the two entrances). That being said, the dive itself is nothing short of spectacular and one I will certainly not miss when I return. I encountered a new species of shark (tiger perhaps?) right along the wall that I hadn't seen on the west coast dives. It was exhilarating and beautiful all at the same time.
