Quiet site to do some crabbing. Not too much bottom life. Visibility usually isn't great, and time your dive carefully as currents can get pretty nasty. Limited parking, and I've seen it get busy on weekends.

Great site with one of just about everything you can see in the Lower Mainland. The bottom is covered in boulder fill that creates numerous caves for octopus, rockfish, and everything else. I've heard of just about anything being seen here ranging from dogfish, ratfish, even a six-gill shark and a salmon. However, diving is restricted to the portion of the year when the marina isn't busy - essentially a winter-only site.
