Dove this on 12-27-03. Vis was about 2 to 3 ft. The walk into this site is a bit of a hike but no big rocks to crawl over as at the jetty. Sandy entrance bottom drops off fairly sharp after a few ft or sooner depending on the tide. Rock wall runs from east to west and provides some area for crabs. I have heard this spot was hot for crabs but only brought up one keeper, and another pair of divers that went in at the same time also only pulled in one keeper. The channel is only about 75 yards across at low so the current is very strong here. Must try this spot in better water conditions. It had been rainning for weeks so lots of run off, and water was a bit choppy with a storm moving in. Seems like it could be good diving under better conditions..
