This is a boat only dive. It is known locally as the Muary Island Barges, since there are 3 old wooden barges sunk at the left end of the pilings. The are starting to rot apart, but they are covered with life. Directly in front of the last, left piling, there is a small cabin-cruiser sunk to explore. There was an octopus living under it last time I was there. Just passed the right ending of the pilings, there is a bolder field to explore. The pilings themselves are worth a look as they quite a bit of growth on them, a good place to make your safety stop. Farther in towards shore, there is eel grass starting at about 18 feet, where you can see schools of pipe fish. This is one of my favorite dives because there is always lots to see.
