Spent a day diving Back beach in early September. The weather was amazing, low 80's with plenty of sunshine. The water was a warm 65 degrees with no surface chop and no current. We dove the left side and saw plenty of lobster, small schools of fish, crabs and some flounder. The plant life was incredibly healthy and the visibility was exceptional. I would definitely return here but bring a few extra tanks and do multiple dive. The only downside was the amount of divers in the water and the serious limits with parking. It would be an interesting night dive.
