Evaluation

*Average:    4.29
Dove LBTS off of Datura Ave: south of the pier. Public Parking is limited near the beach entry, so it is best to arrive early. I did not find a close by parking space, so dropped off my gear with a buddy and drove a few hundred yards away to find a space. There are park benches, making set up easy and outdoor showers to clean off gear afterward. The walk across the sand is easy and the swim to the first reef line, which is a bit over half way down the pier, does not take very long in the summer when conditions are usually close to flat calm. The second reef line is at close to the end of the pier. The pier keeps boat traffic light, so there is little danger of being run over while swimming out to the reef: but always a good idea to keep your eyes open. The day I dove, we saw many tropicals, a spotted eel and fairly healthy looking coral. Other folks have seen rays, nurse sharks and other critters. Given the shallow depths, it would be easy to get a 1.5-2 hour dive on a 80 cf tank.
