I've logged many dives here and have to say it's one of my favorite dive spots in the SLO area. I've seen swell sharks, surf perch, rock fish, lingcod, cabezon, thornback rays, and even jumped a halibut here. Night diving can be adventurous here but watch out for the rangers since the beach closes early (we got in trouble last time). Dive the left wall and far left corner of the cove for some awesome rock formations. If you head straight out on the left side of the rock, you may come across a large boat anchor in ~20ft. The surf is always low but the vis varies (0-20ft).
