Fun dive! Huge under water structures and walls, just imagine the rocks in the picture only underwater! I've done 4 dive here in the last 6 months I've maybe explored 1/3 of the reef. Expect good numbers of Dungeness, lot's of Kelp Greenlin, I always see at least one Lingcod. The amount of invertebrate life is simply amazing! Beach entry is easy, but climbing down the rocks to the beach with your gear can be difficult! Watch the tides!! ONLY attempt this dive if you are confident in current and good with a compass. There are so many rock formations to explore it's easy to get turned around and swim farther into the shipping channel, which can be busy. This is a fun drift dive if you have a boat!! The last time I drift dove this there was only a 5ft. exchange and my dive partner and I ended up almost to the Coast Guard Station!!! Even during slack tide the current sometimes does not stop, again watch the tides here! Max depth is about 60-70ftsw. Vis is anywhere between 2 - 30 ft I've had both! Watch the weather, rain, swell, etc.. to gauge possible vis. Have fun!!
