If topography is your thing, this is the site to dive, especially after the landslide. This site offers a little bit for everyone. Beginning divers can stay in the shallows and look amongst the rock piles that are in <30' of water. Beginners can also hit the top of the canyon in areas where the top is at <60'. Juvenile fish, sand dollars, armored sea stars, sand dabs, and numerous crabs to be found here. Intermediate and advanced divers can go to the upper edge of the canyon and to the bottom of the main walls. Divers often can find themselves swimming along the vertical walls peering into crevices and searching for shrimp, octopi, and sheep crab. Lobsters are also numerous under the many ledges at the top of the walls. Only advanced divers with the necessary training should venture into the deeper areas of the canyon. Found deep in the canyon is a wreck of a ski boat and numerous pinnacles. The flat but narrow bottom makes an easy descent, and the narrow bottom also allows easy access to a visual reference (the walls) for a quick ascent. DO NOT GO DEEP WITHOUT THE NECESSARY EQUIPMENT AND TRAINING! It is very easy to find yourself in trouble.
