Description

Long Island has a wall on either side of the cove on the north side of the Island. The western wall is a sharp drop-off plummeting from about 30' to a couple hundred feet deep, broken by narrow ledges and covered with large white plumose anemones. The Wall to the east side of the cove (to the right coming out of the cove at the point) is a white plumose covered descent cascading in rounded "mounds" from the bull kelp shallows to about 100'.

Special Restrictions:

Dive at slack and during low exchanges due to intense currents. Heavy boat traffic in the

How to get there:

Found on the north side of the privately owned Long Island. Anchor in the small cove on the north side to the west end of the island.

We hit the western wall and it was GREAT! Let the current gently sweep us over fields of strawberry anenomes for the first part of the dive, then started exploring endless nooks and crannies. My buddy found a medium-sized GPO just chillin' on a ledge. We played with him for a while and he never spooked! Awesome site. Definitely one of the western SJ's top spots!
