Park on the Northwest side of Saxe Point, close to the trail heads. One trail head is just to the left of this building. Here's the small, protected beach cove. A secondary entry is to the left over the rocks, if you find the beach entry too crowded. There is just a small amount of kelp to negotiate. Keep to your left, and watch for any current.

Simple dive to get in the water. Easy with no one around, you have the site to you and your buddy.

Average dive, pretty shallow though. Nice little undercuts and crevices in the wall. That's where most of the life is. Use a light to see the colourful coating of sponges in these little "caves". Visibility can be pretty bad, especially when the weather's been rough.
