Walls of various heights about 80-100 feet. lots of structure. Boot and cloud sponges can be found here near the base of the walls. Rockfish and greenlings dominate this site, with plenty of small fish such as Gobies and Sculpins in the shallows.
How to get there:
From Victoria head north on Hwy 17. Take the Royal Oak Drive exit and head west on Royal Oak. After you pass over the Hwy take a right on West Saanich Rd. After 4 miles or so, take a left on Wallace drive then shortly after another left on Willis Point road which will end at a "T" at Mark Road. Turn left and continue till the road ends at some concrete blocks. Gear up and walk down the blocked road down the hill till the road starts to turn left. Look for the trail heading down to the cove. Diving is good anywhere out from there. The "abyss" is found by swimming out to the right past the big boulder and decending and fallowing the ravine to the wall.
