03/23/2003 Bill Stohler (Avg: 3.07 Review) - Interesting site. Parking is plentiful behind the hill. Slightly more challenging hike than the Scenic Outlook. Very similar underwater topography and enjoyable reefs. Typically poor vis (<50 feet). Varied marine life (awa, turtles, reef fish, etc.). Difficult entry/exit makes this an advanced dive. Don't try this one if the waves are breaking on the rocky shoreline. Hard-soled booties required.
