My dive buddy and I attempted a night dive here 12/7/2001. Spent about 5 min. underwater, vis was maybe 2ft and current was clipping along nicely even before you could reach the dock shown in the picture. Lots of eel grass when you first enter the water until the bottoms drops away, which it does just like the description says. We did see an awful lot of Dungeness during our brief dive! The entry couldn't be any easier! You can almost step out of your car and into the water, from car to water and back entry and exit couldn't be any easier unless someone carried you! I do want to try this again when the vis and current are more manageable. I report back when I do, which hopefully won't be long, I'm a volunteer diver at the Oregon Coast Aquarium http://www.aquarium.com and diving there at least every three weeks.
