I dove here quite a bit my first year and a half of diving before moving to warmer waters. The inland side of the 3rd finger is nice for newer divers. Lots of crab, junk and small fish to look at. There's some amount of rock hopping to do to get to the water. Once you get used to this spot, especially exiting the water, then it's fun to dive from the 5th finger on a slack tide before an incoming (high) tide. There's some fairly major boulders to climb with your gear on so you'll be happy to finally reach the water. There's a bit faster drop off at the 5th finger and you'll hit nearly 30' at depth. We dive inland along the jetty from here and get out at the inland side of the 3rd finger, nudged along by the current as the tide comes in. Along the way there are lots of fish... ling cod, cabezon, rock fish and such so it can be a good spot to bring a pole spear if you like. There are Metridium anemones, crabs and lots of nudibranchs to look at and you'll sometimes see green shrimp if you look closely. Warning...dive the bay side of the jetty, not the ocean side unless you are a very good diver and going with someone who's done it already. Divers have died on the south (ocean) side of the jetty.
