The vis here is really hit and miss, I always hit the miss. Been here 5 or 6 times now and the fish seem fairly consistent at small to keeper size no BIG ones though. I dive the parking lot side of the jetty and am told the coast guard tower side has bigger game. Got 3 keeper Dungeness last dive and missed about a 30" ling. The dive is good after you hit the water. Hitting the water is the hard part the rocks are big and small unstable ones, at high tide not too much slippery ones though. I love the "in the water" part of this dive just hate getting in and out. Bottom is about 35 to 40 ft here and there is decent life. Good one to hit early on just watch the tides they can be a bit tricky.
