I have been diving this cove for years and I still enjoy spending a couple hours free diving around the cove. As far as abalone are concerned the areas inside the cove have been pretty picked over and require some searching to find a legal size ab. I have had more luck in the south side of the cove in finding abs and fish as there is more rock structure and much more kelp. If you can launch a kayak and paddle north outside the cove you can quickly get into some really good abs, but be prepared to dive deep (20+ feet). If you have a little experience ab diving I would drive a little farther north to Salt point as, while the conditions are often much tougher, the abalone are more plentiful.
