Evaluation

*Average:    3.95
April 3, 2013 Took my wife on her very first post certification dive. Outstanding spot! We arrived around 8 am on a weekday and were the only divers there. As other posters have stated it is a bit of a swim out to the first buoy. The second and third buoys are still there but were underwater and were not visible from the surface. The third buoy was about 10 feet underwater. From the first buoy we headed toward the house on the point and eventually reached some overhangs, then the caverns. Recommend that you swim out with snorkel as to not waste bottom time. Total depth we hit was 42 feet. There were three large green turtles hanging out relaxing under the first buoy. Coral was decent but the animal life was very good. We saw 10 turtles, lots of fish, moray eels, flounder, shells, a fish eating a small puffer, etc.
