03/10/2017 Tim from Santa Barbara (Avg: 3.05 Review) - I had to go out a ways before it got deep enough to enjoy but then good clear visibility and great Christmas tree coral.

08/06/2002 Kim (Avg: 3.00 Review) - I did not rate this site - we went to dive it - but there is a sign that says it is private property, no trespassing. FYI
