Evaluation

*Average:    3.51
There truly is something for everyone at this site. This site is not current sensitive, so you will find lots and lots of open water classes here on the weekends. There's the "Honey Bear", a small boat wreck where you can usually find an octopus or two hanging out in at only 45fsw or so. There's the I-beams which are between about 85fsw to 100fsw, and there's always the boundary line as well. A nice tour that starts in Cove 2 and ends in Cove 3. Watch your air should you take the boundary line tour. You'll be at 100-110fsw for quite some time, often going into deco. Saw my only six gill shark here. As someone else mentioned, this is one of the best places in the world to see six gill sharks. Be careful not to venture inside the boundary line. It marks off the water taxi path and the city has threatened to close this area to diving due to divers invading the water taxi path.
