The addition of the large rock reefs has turned this place into an excellent dive site, with the caveat that they're all in the 60-80 foot range. Lots of rockfish (browns, copper, quillbacks, blacks, and an occasional vermillion), ling cod, kelp greenlings, painted greenlings, etc. Visibility has ranged from nothing to 20 feet on the surface, with excellent visibility at 60+ fsw. Getting to the reefs however, can be tiring. Swim out perpendicular to shore until you find a north-south rope trail, then follow that north. If you hit a tire reef, you've gone too far north and have missed the cool stuff. You'll see an east-west rope trail eventually, follow that west, and you'll hit the big rock reefs.
