08/26/2009 Richard from Susanville (Avg: 3.07 Review) - Beautiful water! No dry suit needed either day. Water temp was 65* @ 30 feet, 80 at the surface. Shocking, I know, but No typo. Not much life (lots of crawdads, very few fish). A few artificial 'reefs' (ie, very old engine blocks, some old structures of historical interest). Parking was a breeze, flush toilets available. Very easy dive, great for a beginner or returning diver such as myself. May get a little boring for advanced divers, but interesting anyway.
01/13/2008 Anonymous (Avg: 3.13 Review) - This site is awesome, and it is a great training site. There is not a lot to see, but you can see Crawdads, Threadfin Sculpin, and tuichubs.
