05/19/2010 Anonymous (Avg: 3.00 Review) - A great place to go to get wet. Work on peak buoyancy or hone in on perfect weight, good place to learn and master navigation, you can't get lost.... It's a cove with seaweed barrier to the ocean... if you want to stay in the cove it's only good 1.5 hrs either side of high tide as there is only 10ft water at high tide. Good for newbie. If all goes wrong ' stand up '. I take my boy here to practice

03/13/2007 Jeremy (Avg: 3.72 Review) - The sunken forest, if you are a good diver, can be a beautiful place to dive. Those who want to go deep may not be happy, but it is a nice dive.

11/21/2005 Daniel Epstein (Avg: 2.05 Review) - The sunken forest was a joke. It was a waste of time and energy.
