We dove this site March of 2015. This site is a great place to dive, but I would really recommend doing it at high tide only. We dove near low tide and were only in about 6ft of water most the time ha-ha. There are a couple stair cases that lead down, we used the one out at the point. It is narrow, and then we had to climb down the rocks to walk out and dive. Vis was poor and the surge was strong. I think in the right conditions, this would be an amazing site to dive. A lot of plant life within the kelp and lots of smaller fish, you have to look close to see the micro life here. No real current to speak of just surge like others have mentioned. Gear up in the parking area and hike down. Again, high tide or you might as well just snorkel it.
