I've dove this location a few times now and have had great dives here every time. Like most dive spots in the area, you've got to be selective! My first experience with this site was what we called 'Tahiti Water' since the viz was insane! The worst part of the entry is the climb back up to your vehicle and I guess the surface swim can be a bit lengthy. Our deepest was around 30' with a sandy/ rocky bottom but I've only done this site near the October months. Although there wasn't much sea life (except a harbor seal) the kelp forests were LUSH!!! http://www.flickr.com/photos/taitano/1105449244/in/set-72157594493930134/
