I've made 50+ scuba dives here, 40 as a beginner. Excellent site for beginners to drop down to 15' for an hour. Garibaldi everywhere, calico bass, sand bass, kelp bass, senorita fish, opal eye...lots of fish! Lobsters too! Kelp a little further out, and that's neat to swim thru. No sea stars tho', few anemones too. It's a hike back up the lifeguard road. Easy access from the beach and novice rocky entry area for practice. I've lost 1 flashlight, 1 knife, and 1 watch there (got the watch back tho'). Found 1 weight belt. Rocks meet sand here. No sharks ever. It's absolutely amazing here. Haggerty's entrance is STEEP and just West. Great there too. Sea-D-Sea is the local dive shop (in Hollywood Rivera). They are nice. 5 minutes away too. Great spot for new girl divers, exits are easy @ beach. Save some air @ end of dive and surface under kids surfing in the cove-scare the heck out of 'em! Ha! ;)
