Fifteen oblique observations...
1. You can see most of the park at 20 to 30 feet, or go to 50 for a bit more.
2. You can leave shore on regulator or snorkel and see critters the entire dive.
3. The ropes are within 5 minutes of beach entry.
4. Some of my best photos are on the ropes going to the structures.
5. "Big fish seen here" is not an exaggeration.
6. One lingcod was ~5 feet long with a head larger than a basketball.
7. The Cabezon are trophy size also, and hopefully never end up in angler's den.
8. It's great to have a place for these critters to live in relative peace. [Kudos to Seattle!]
9. Most large crabs are without pinchers.
10. Tip: Safeway sells them and you don't have to look over your shoulder.
11. At 7:30am Saturday, it appeared we were first in the water.
12. Random sample of 20 divers: 16 went left, and 4 off the jetty to the center [entry at beach].
13. Our favorite dive was the left side.
14. For more 'photographic isolation' try the center and right sides [not a compromise].
15. On three weekend dives, we never saw another diver underwater.
