This is a fun site with an extremely easy entry; rare for much of the Mendocino coast. The underwater geography along the left of the cove near the entrance is impressive. Valleys and huge boulders with lots of fish, kelp, nudibranch and all the usual suspects. Some surface swim necessary to get near the mouth. Just dove it on a stunningly clear day in January and vis must have been 30ish feet (during nudi breeding season, too, so saw literally hundreds of the critters). Normal vis probably more like 10'-20'
