Evaluation

*Average:    3.28
Salt Creek is a dive site that offers many rewards for a diver that looks for the out of the way dive site. I started diving here in winter of 1978 have dove this site in all 4 seasons. It can be a challenge to dive here. The surge can toss you around or sweep you across the bottom. But if you watch the weather conditions and tides you can enjoyable dive. I like starting at the east end by the kitchen and heading west and coming out on Tongue Point. The reef with the kelp beds are is so spectacular in the spring with all of the new fishes swimming in schools. It is so colorful here like being in some aquarium seen. The depth is around 25-35 feet all the way. The exit is nice, and if you time the swell you can be standing up with your fins in your hand and walk out. Enjoy your dive.
