Entry: Easy Shore Entry , Boat Access
Attractions: Large Rock Formation / Pinnacle, Boulder Pile / Shelves, Kelp Forest, Eel Grass Beds

This dive is spectacular in the summer and fall when the kelp is growing. You can head in any dirrection you want. The shore in the shallows is covered in cobble and boulders but quickly give way to a gently sloped sandy bottom. You will find very large rocks covered in kelp with sandy channels in between them. The channels makes this site more begginner friendly than most dives in the area, allowing the begginer to enjoy the beauty of kelp and rocks without having to enter into the kelp tangle. You will find the usual kelp forest creatures including Lingcod, Cabazon, Kelp greenlings, and Black Rockfish hanging under the canopy. The depths range from 15 to 40 feet on a 5 foot tide, though there is a lot to see right in the 20-25 foot range.

This site is subject to strong current and swells. The begginer can enjoy this site on a calm day near slack tide or a low exchange. Advanced divers can enjoy at anytime according to thier skills and experience with surge and current.
