You can choose to dive one of three areas of this park.

  1. The best portion is the finger reef that jets out from the point just below the lighthouse. It is marked by wash rocks and kelp. Divers may encounter yellowtail, opaleye and sea bass around this reef. This one is quite a walk in scuba gear if the gate to the light house is locked. If it is open then you can pull in to the turn about near the lighthouse and drop off gear. Park your car and return for your dive.
  2. There are some rocks surrounded by water in the middle of the cove to the east (left if looking out from shore). It is rather shallow here but divers or free divers may encounter perch, sea bass, rays and halibut in the sandy area around the rocks.
  3. On the eastern end of the cove there is a small reef that jets out into the bay with similar aquatic life.
Depths in this cove range from 15í to 40í deep. Please be careful diving or snorkeling around wash rocks so you donít get tossed against them. This site is typically protected in the summer from the southern swell by Catalina Island and is always out of the way from northern swells thus usually provides clear calm water.
