Kelp Forest

Description

Clover Point is a kelp forest dive east of the popular Ogden Point. Enter the water and head toward the kelp that is attached to the rocky reef below. The current typically pulls you to the right (south). A decent variety of life can be found among the kelp forest and the rocky bottom as you swim and drift along the reef parallel to the shore toward the point. Turn and return inside the kelp in the shallows or outside the kelp near the sand. The depths range from 30í-40í on the outside of the rocky bottom where it turns to sand. There isnít much more to see beyond this point besides sea pens and crab.

Special Restrictions:

The current usually moves southward (to the right if entering from shore) and gets stronger near the point. This means youíll be returning to your exit point against the current if diving off slack so plan appropriately. Kelp can be thick in the summer months. Please check weather and tides before diving.

How to get there:

Clover Point is located off of Dallas Rd near Moss St., clover point is visible from this intersection. There is a small road leading out to a turn around parking lot. Follow the ramp near the building on the East side of the parking lot to the water.

This was a cool place. I think it would be better with good vis.

The water was a bit stirred up and visibility was poor as you neared the point. The summer kelp is still in and covered nearly the entire reef, making it difficult to find critters. Still, not a bad dive site. Easy entry and lots of structure make it a great macro photography site.
