I've dove this sight 5 times and it's a good dive. Anemones cover the pilings and there are tons of ratfish. There are lots of Dungeness Crabs, Starfish, Greenling, and the occasional Nudibranch. I've done 2 night dives at this location and on one of them I played with a baby octo. You have to watch your depth, as it can creep up on you fast if you head west of the dock. You can easily get down to 120'. The docks are going to be torn down in November, but I hear hopefully that they'll leave the pilings underwater.
