This dive reminded me more of diving in Grenada, than any of the dives I've done in the sound, because of the clearer water and the abundance and variety of life. Of course, the masses of Kelp that are present in August keep you from being able to appreciate the full effects of the increased visibility but, the kelp can be fun to wind your way through as long as you can keep from getting tangled in it. In some places it's so thick overhead you feel like your doing a cave dive. Their are fields of purple urchins and a good variety of colorful anemones and starfish. The surf was low that day, I see how entry could be interesting on a choppier day. Along the shoreline in about the center of the campgrounds their are some shallow caves and a tunnel you can swim part way through. The campground is nice, be aware they hold an annual high school cross country meet there on a Saturday in mid September and you may not be able to get in into the park that day.
