Evaluation

*Average:    3.72
Parking was $8 at 10:00am. Rocky entry in center of cove on east side of park. Difficult entry even at high tide with small 1-2 ft waves. Takes time but well worth it! Kicked out to white point on left side facing water. Saw many stars urchins, some perch, bass and garibaldi. Palm kelp forest was fascinating and rocky reef was great. White point is named for the white fluff growing around the hot vents. Current pulled us out to sea a bit, but with less than 30 feet deep, we surfaced half way to get bearings and we farther out than expected! Returned on a 0 degree heading and explored the cove. Railroad tracks, urchins, stars and rocks were beautiful in the shallow lighted cove. Going back tomorrow to explore the west side of the cove and kelp. This is a special place, above and below the water. Bring cat food to feed the spayed feral kittens who live in the rocks.
