Evaluation

*Average:    3.87
The Spanish Rocks are an easy, and enjoyable dive. Park at the beach access beside 33rd, and prepare for a short walk. Well it won't feel so short when carrying your gear. From the beach access go south 6 houses. There is white box framed house. Put your gear directly in front of the house. Typically there is very little current, but what current there is will send you north up the rocks. Swim past the buoy, and drop down 15 feet or so afterwards. Head west, and you will come to the rocks. Your depth will be between 17' and 22' feet. There is another set of rocks another 50 yards out. Viz will anywhere from 3' to 15' feet typically. This is a fun dive, and because of the lack of depth you can stay under for what feels like forever. You will be greeted by several species of fish on the rocks. If you're lucky you may spot a ray or a nurse shark. The water temp was 86F when we dove Spanish Rocks last.
