Snorkeling and Scuba Diving at Caspar Bay

Caspar Bay is an easy dive on all levels. If you're looking for Abalone, try the Southern side of the bay. About 5 miles South of Fort Bragg on Highway 1, head West on Point Cabrillo Drive (located on the South side of the Cabrillio River Bridge)

Just watch out for the occasional surfer and painter, and enjoy your dive! There's limited parking next to beach, but parking elsewhere will not be a problem. This is looking North, with the Cabrillio River Bridge in the background. Head to the ocean from here.

I have a love hate relationship with this site. I have seen vis. at 1' (or less) and vis. at 25'. Dive here on a good day and it's BEAUTIFUL! Be ready to swim your ass off!!! This site is shallow, about 30+', near the mouth of cove. The south side of the cove is very interesting. Sandy bottom with huge rock formations, some jetting straight up to the surface. Lots of fish, abalone, huge sea urchins, star fish, anemones, kelp, ladies underwear (I didn't put'em there). Great beach too!

Sandy bottom mostly, with lots of live sand dollars roaming. There is a strong current in center of bay, and the southern side has plant life, abalone, and a large 7-8 ft. anchor with 1ft.long chain links. Calm seas & early arrival offer the best diving.

This is a great site for kayaking or strong swimmers. Interesting bottom topography, and a great dive in good visibility. Plankton bloom has disastrous effect on the site though, as I have been in completely orange soup with 6" viz.
