I dove this site last night on August 5 2010. Everything I have read about ideal conditions is true; High tide with a southern swell. There are a lot of rocks on entry so high tide is best for entry so that you don't have to walk across all the rocks. One should still be careful while entering and exiting. In addition the southern swell allowed for great visibility varying from 15-25 feet. We started the dive at dusk and took a heading of approx. 210 degrees towards the point of Palos Verdes. There are lots of rocks and kelp for fish and lobsters to hide in and around. The lobsters are not too big, the biggest one I saw was maybe 2lbs. There are not really any big game fish here so spear guns are not needed. Night soon fell, but we were equipped with our lights. There was not any current to sweep us away and the swim club building on the rocks provides plenty of light to easily locate shore. This is a very safe & fun local dive. The road that leads down to the rocks is paved and a little steep so being fit is important. But I've had harder hikes down to the beach like at beautiful Crystal Cove. But that's another story.
