Evaluation

*Average:    4.06
8/2013 kicked out from the sandy beach just South of the lifeguard house swung wide around the rocks and headed South around the point before turning around. However, access would have been even easier from the rock cove left of the bathhouse ruins(yes, the Japanese built a small resort here utilizing the warm water vents!). Visibility cleared out to about 30 feet in some spots-averaging 10-20. Exited into the small cove next to the bathhouse just after high tide with no issues. The trick I bet is to do this on a hide tide if you are going to enter over the rocks. Watch the currents/surge around the point since the rocks funnel the current. There must be an eddy here since at falling tide I was being pushed shoreward at one spot.
