This is the condition at low tide. An easy hike down the sandy shoot, but a bit more difficult around the high tide since rocks and crevices are difficult to see. You can see a high tide, the walk out to a diveable depth would difficult Take your time, and help your buddy in and out. This is the best entry, but there are a couple of other spot that are more challenging.

This is an easy site to get into. Plan to dive at high tide, otherwise it will be shallow unless you go out about 200 feet.
