This was my first dive at Gerstle Cove and it is a very nice place. I didn't care for the bowling ball sized rocks on the beach so I would recommend that you dive this location on high slack tide. My timing was waaaay off and I dove near the end of low tide. Once I got in the water I was amazed at the beauty of the rocks and plant life. Plenty of curious fish to look at while they check you out, too. The restrooms weren't open when I was there a couple of weeks ago but the showers/rinse station was operating. Services are scarce in the area. Bodega Bay for air and most everything else now that I think about it. Most of the restaurants and motels I saw were closed beyond Bodega Bay but I suspect that was a seasonal thing. I look forward to going again soon.
