This site offers easy access and egress, toilet & changing facilities nearby, convenient parking, food and drink nearby, and it is not current intensive. I am comfortable in recommending the site for recently certified divers. Interference with the water taxi is easily avoided by turning right (south) after entry. I witnessed two divers, members of an AOW class, surface swimming directly in the path of the taxi, requiring it to come to a stop. That thoughtlessness could eliminate this as a dive site. Bring a safety float & flag. The marine environment is well-populated with rockfish, and the pilings are covered with plumose anemones. Water temp on my last visit (June) was 52-53 degrees F. Visibility varied on my visits. Initially limited at 12-15 feet, a subsequent visit provided >25ft and good photo opportunities. Burdened by gear, footing to and from the water on the sloped surface was complicated by slippery round stones. I enjoy this site and recommend it for all experience levels.
