South Crescent is a very fun little maze to check out. The reef is adjacent to Shaw's Cove and I have found a huge amount of life swimming about. Keep your eyes peeled in the cracks and crevices for eel and octopi. South Crescent has a great little maze to check out. The reef is adjacent to Shaw's Cove and I have found a huge amount of life swimming about. Keep your eyes peeled in the cracks and crevices for eel and octopi. This location offers an assortment of nice dive sites including: South Crescent, North Crescent, Sea Rock (I suggest this on a clear warm day when they are more active and playful), Dead Man's Reef, and Pinnacle. Keep in mind, Dead Man's, Pin, and the Rock are a mile swim minimum. Depths range from 10-40ft at the reef at South and North Crescent to a max of 50-65ft at Dead Man's. In an effort to prevent any soiled wetsuits, please note that the seals do get very playful at times and love to suddenly appear right next to you. I mention this only because I have witnessed countless divers emitting a brown cloud when they notice a sea lion within arms reach having a little fun with them. My best advice is to take every dive here slow, so you won't miss the stuff that makes this a great spot.

I wouldn't suggest to anyone unless experienced in rough water entries and exits. This place can be calm or can have 4-6 surf in rapid strong patterns. Most of what people want to see is between 10-20ft. On a bad day the surf and surge can kick up sand and debris making visibility 5ft at best and the surge will knock you around like a heavy weight boxer. The overall enjoyment is good if you want to see plant life, but the fish tend to hide every time I have been there. If you can dive this locations on a bad day without incident (getting knocked over, losing equipment, etc) then you are doing great.

If it weren't for the fact that this was my first experience with diving, I would agree with everyone else and exclaim this is really nothing to make a day trip out of. However, it was the greatest dive to someone who hasn't dived before! I have since spent my time at La Paz MX, Coronado islands MX, Los Cabos MX, and all over California, but I still have a place in my heart for this place.

This place is a shot in the dark. I live close to it and some days it has a great visibility, others you can only see above water. There are always classes Sat & Sun, but they have to be gone by 11am. It is best to hit this place early to avoid people and find parking, plus it's usually the best time for visibility.
