Dove this site on a bad day. Vis was about 1 to 2 ft. Water was churning very bad and the surge was intent on ramming my partner and me into the rocks. Entry was not easy. I have dived Barview Jetty north of Garabaldi and the drop off there is more severe making it easier to get into deeper water. I saw only a couple small fish here and only one rock crab. The current was strong. Even between the fingers it was about 1.25 hours before the high tide with a 5ft exchange between low and high. I have heard good things about diving here and will definitly try it again under better conditions. Today was a bad day for vis and perhaps some of the other fingers are more accessable. There is a dive store/bait shop at the end of the road and it has a great set up for cleaning gear and even getting a hot shower, air fills and other acesseries at what seem to be great prices for any area.
