My wife, father-in-law and I took the hike down to this site for our first time on 9/1/2003. We didn't have any kind of cart for our gear and it was quite taxing getting to and from the site. We were fairly nervous getting into the water because of all the warnings about the current. I strongly suggest you get there early in case it takes longer than you expect to get in the water. You don't want to miss slack tide. Anyhow, when we got in the water, we had the best visibility we have ever seen in the Pacific Northwest. There was more life on this dive than I've seen in a lot of dives combined. We didn't get to see any of the octopi that are supposed to be there, but there were several Wolf Eels and an abundance of other sea critters. Be very careful and enjoy an excellent dive!
