Time your entry perfectly! Current can rip here, very unexpectedly. Also, be prepared for a hike before and after the dive. The wall is pretty uneventful, actually there are 2 walls. The first wall start at 15' and goes to 35'. Then a second, smaller wall starts at 50' and goes to about 80'. There isn't a whole lot of life at this site, but we did manage to find 3 octos and a wolf eel on a dive here. We saw one octo on the lower wall, one on the upper wall, and one on the shelf above the upper wall, so the life doesn't seem to be limited to one area. The dive would've been pretty uneventful had we not found the octos, but it's worth doing. I'll probably do it again, after my calves stop hurting from the hike!
