The dive shop Octopuses Garden recommend this site since we were looking for a current independent site. This is a good site for beginners or as a second shallow dive since the bottom slopes very gently. Also, it is very convenient to follow the pipelines and not have to worry too much about navigation. Once we found the pipeline (which is about 100' to the left of the pilings) we followed it slowly down to about 40'. Saw lots of life on and under pipeline including octopus, lemon nudi, decorator crab, rockfish, etc. the highlight for us was being buzzed by a 3-4 foot dogfish who circled us one and then scooted away.
