Entry: Moderate Shore Entry , Boat Access
Attractions: Debris, Boulder Pile / Shelves, Eel Grass Beds

There are essentially two different dives here. The most popular is a series of cement columns and rocks that make up the primary reef directly in from of the orange tower. They are covered with plumose anemones and swarmed with rock fish, perch, sculpin, greenling, etc. The structure is beautiful and reaches from approximately 30ft to 110ft with some boulders scattered up as far as 15ft on a low tide.

About 50 yards away to the South is another finger of boulders that extends from about 60ft to 120ft. Here the fish tend to be larger and equally plentiful and make a great alternative if there are other divers at the columns. You can swim to it from the other reef but there isn't much to look at along the way.

The reef extends on a steep sloping bottom that gets deep rapidly. The shallows are covered in eel grass and sea lettuce and house all sorts of small creatures such as gunnels and sole and make a great spot for safety stops. Visibility tends to be good and current is usually mild.
