We dove this yesterday on flood (tide coming in) current. We started in Sharpe Cove and swam south around the point then headed east-notheast toward urchin rocks. As I expected and planned we were swimming into the current. This is the opposite of what paragraph 2 of the description of this dive seems to suggest. We turned around halfway through the dive and swam with the current then back west-southwest toward Sharp Cove. When we came around the south end of the point and turned north into the cove the current was pushing us south out of the cove even though it was still 30 minutes or so before the predicted high tide for Bowman Bay. That I didn't expect. Does the current maybe swirl counter-clockwise around Bowman Bay when approaching high slack? Either way someone should take a look at that description and tell me if I'm missing something.
