We went on 7/15/10 at 5pm (low tide). As a beginning skin diver, I was looking for a place with easy entry and lots to see. The road from the parking lot leads you right down to the beach, where the rocks meet the sand. I went in through the sandy beach, and paddled over to the reef. The beach was crowded, but no one was snorkeling. Visibility was bad (maybe 5' or so), so we had to dive to about ten feet to see anything. I've seen some websites that said go during low tide, and some that said go during high tide. We tried at low tide, and it sucked. Couldn't hardly see anything. Gonna try back at high tide sometime soon.
