I have been diving this site for 5 years. It is a really easy fun dive. Don't be alarmed by the shark that is there all the time, he/she is super chill and not a threat. If you are taking a beginning diver out, it is a really great (Safe) way to give them their first shark encounter. The collapsed pier offers a lot of cool hiding spots for a lot of different fish as well as some cool swim throughs. There are 2 ways to enter, you can go along the rocks to the left of the dock and walk out to the edge of the break wall. Be careful if you go this way, as I have dropped gear in those rocks more than once, never to be found again. You can also enter from the left of the pier. If you go in on the left, it is very very shallow, which can be kind of freaky. If you want to find the shark, he hangs out under a big piece of concrete almost to the end of the sunken pier. At night, this place is cool, not the best night dive, but pretty fun.
