Evaluation

*Average:    3.19
Also called Scenic Lookout, on Highway 30 nearest mile marker 9, the signs for Scenic Lookout are one mile out on either side. Large paved parking area is a good lookout for whales in season. This site is easy to find but best done with an experienced guide. The path down the hill is steep and currents around this point can complicate the dive plan. The entry is a rocky ledge to the far left. You can do a giant stride here. The exit is easiest at high tide. This is a mini wall dive with a lot of ornamental fish. I don't see many game fish, which begs the question, why so much fishing gear on the bottom? If you turn south from the wall you'll reach depths fast and on the way find small out-croppings with every kind of eel.
