Evaluation

*Average:    3.59
This is another site I dive often - I can see my house from there so I can dive it on my way home from work. Head directly out from the public bathrooms. At 35 ft will be a small wave-cut ledge. At 55 ft will be a larger ledge. These ledges are where most of the sea life is. Look in the cavities left by clams to see shrimp, blennies, gobies, gunnels, crab, sailfin sculpin and grunt sculpin. Occasionally, octopus or wolf-eels will take up residence. Cabezon, lingcod, and greenling are often seen resting at the edge of a ledge. Harbor seals may be seen at any time of the year, but sea lions come by in the winter months. You have a very good chance of a sea lion encounter in the mid-winter. Winter provides better visibility and currents. Hazards include boats, jet skis, and currents. You can go as deep as you want for the bottom drops down to 900 ft.
