Evaluation

*Average:    3.15
Dove here on Sunday 8/21/10. Was a nice dive with lots of life. Lots of Monkeyface Pricklebacks in the rocks. We had good vis for Oregon diving between 15'and 20'. Did high tide and low tide dives. Getting out after the dive I would have to say the high tide dive was easier. Could surface swim in almost to the beach. With the low tide dive you had to walk in knee deep water for 75 yards or so and keep an eye on the rocks. One thing with this dive is the Depth. You need to drop down on the west rock of the group and on the west side of this rock is a nice little wall that will get you to between 25' and 30'. We did see a few Monkeyface on this wall also. The way we used to get to the west rock and avoid all the other smaller rocks underwater was to go in from the sandy beach and head towards and to the east of the farthest rock and have the current help you get around the back of the rocks and to the far west rock with the wall. If you try to get underwater between the beach shore and the rocks, the water is very shallow.
