Evaluation

*Average:    2.39
I seldom dive this spot, even though it is the site listed which is nearest my home. I do visit this park often, since it is so near. As for diving, the access and entry are superb, there is rarely any surf, and currents are usually manageable. The problem ? Boring! I dived this yesterday just to make sure of my previous assessment. The only fish I saw were flounder, even though people fishing at the park claim to catch smelt and sea-run cutthroat. I did see a lot of Dungeness crab, however, this area is temporarily closed to crab. I also saw sea stars, moon snails, nudibranchs, hermit crab, and patches of eelgrass. Kayak Point is a beautiful little park, with nesting bald eagles (I saw four yesterday), and all of the appropriate seabirds in the adjoining bay. In the late spring and early summer, it is a place to see grey whales feeding. It also has a protected boat ramp where I like to put in my sea kayak. There is a four dollar charge for using the park. The park also has a campground on the bluff above the beach which includes Yurt rentals. So, if you want a nice place to go on a picnic or campout, and throw in a dive while you are there, consider it.
