Evaluation

*Average:    3.15
Magnolia is a consistently good dive. Difficult, but not impossible at low tide. We've actually done belly-slides into the water here and almost always exit on hands & knees. Once you're in, there are a couple of sheltered spots to put your fins on. You often have to time your paddling with the waves to get over the rocks into deeper water. I prefer the swim to the left. The swim to the right can lead you up and over and around a maze of boulders that is hard on the ears. Often lots of fishermen here, so watch out for filament and hooks! We usually get lucky with parking. There are a few spots directly across the street. The homeowner adjacent has never complained and we've never been ticketed our towed. I think it's legal parking…
