I have only dove the west wall here. This is a very beautiful dive site with nice ledges and a lot of vegetation growing on the walls. We dove down to the lower second wall first and it was cool to find an octo in one of the many holes in the sandstone walls - nice contour. The shallower wall was my favorite part of the dive as it was covered in various kinds of kelp and a lot of small creatures living amongst them - quite a few nudibranches. I think the thing that sets this dive site apart from other dives I have done in the narrows is the abundance of plant life. The day was so nice we could look up the wall and see the sunlight shining through the kelp as it swayed with the current - very nice dive and a must do.
