We dove this site mid February. The left side access is the best bet, really shallow (Knee Deep)until you get to where the pier starts to fall apart. Wear your booties, lots of urchins and fish hooks. Tons of boat traffic on the right side being an active boat landing! We saw massive assortment of life, white tip sharks, eels, turtles, moorish idols, even a frog fish!!! There are a few swim throughs to try also. Be sure to take a dive flag with you DLNR frequents this site, please don't tie off to living things, plenty of rebar and concrete to tie off on.

We dove this site 3 times the last week of September. One of the easier shore dives we have done. According to the dive shop it was about the only place to dive this time of year, too much current elsewhere. The old boat landing is a little slippery but once past that it is about 4-6 feet deep out to the drop off about 25 yards out, then drops to a sand bottom about 25-30 feet down. First we dove the left side of the reef. It consisted of mainly boulders with few corals, but did have a good variety of fish, including many eels and turtles. We did the next 2 dives to the right. There was much more life and coral, much better dive with more to see than you can on a single tank of air. Even found a cleaner shrimp cleaning station in an isolated coral head in the sand flats on the way back in.
