I've tried 3 times to dive this site. Only on this last dive was it enjoyable. The surge can be maddening. Access is easy if you go further down the RR tracks, past the entry it looks like most people use. We entered near the east most rock which is very close to shore. We circled the rock to the south and headed for deeper water due south. MUCH calmer at 30 ft or deeper. Vis was excellent for Oregon at 12 ft. Plenty of rocks and sea life, very interesting dive. We dove around the high slack with only a 4 foot outgoing exchange but the surge above 20 fsw was too strong to overcome. Just rode it in on a NNE heading and came up on the beach. No facilities but it is right next to the road and there are plenty of local businesses for your needs. This spot is also popular with tidepoolers so you often have a chance to express your enthusiasm for diving to tourists, especially the youngsters. A lovely spot and a great dive on a low exchange.
