We first went to Laguna's hot spots to find 4ft surf and poor viz. We headed up to PV and dove White's Point. We didn't get into the water until 11am (high tide was 11:31am), but the entry was easy (though rocky). You're not going to be overwhelmed by the wild life here, but I was amazed by what I'd consider to be giant sea stars. We kicked out well past the exposed rocks on the west side of the cove and found the water to be apx 20~23ft with viz in the 10~15 foot range once in the deeper water. I'd dive this site again, but I think I'd enter from the Royal Palms beach (south end) and kick over to the cove (I didn't like the rock entry and exit). You can expect to see several species of sea stars, urchins (at least two species) and cold water anemones. We also saw an octopus scooting across the bottom and a couple of empty lobster traps. There was very little current and found ourselves being pulled to shore as the tide was coming in.
