Wow what a site! I dove this yesterday just for the sheer fact that I could not find parking anywhere else in La Jolla. I did dive at low tide and, since the surf was very low, it was quite manageable for anyone with experience. I have dove Shell Beach just north of here several times for lobster but wow did we find some nice big ones here. There are so many little nooks and crannies for them to hang out in. Some are unreachable but there are also a lot of areas that are easy captures that I would have even been able to accomplish in daylight. The options to explore this site are innumerous. I can not wait for Lobster season. Lots of garibaldi in the area and eel grass. If doing a night dive I would definitely do it on high tide. The entry could be tricky because of the large rocks all the way up and down. I found the best entry in front of 417 Coast Blvd where a channel in the rocks exists and you can walk out 10ft and don your fins. I highly recommend this site.
