This site is often overlooked by divers who want to see the sights of nearby Cove 2, however this is a less crowded alternative and a great place to snorkel and free dive. There is a small pier, and several pilings to check out. The pilings are in 25-35 feet of water so the advanced free diver can reach the bottom. The upper part of the pilings provide stuff for the beginning free diver to explore. The shore is rip-rap and also has many treasures to find. Here you will see many small sculpins, and if lucky maybe a Red Irish Lord, Staghorn Sculpin or Gunnel. Starry Flounders and Sand Dabs can be found on the sandy or cobbled sections of the bottom. I sometimes see Ratfish and lingcod and Small Rockfish. In the summer both Striped and Pile perch can be seen. I once saw a Plainfin Midshipman here. I would rate it pretty low as a dive site, but a great free dive site. Even now that I am certified I enjoy night free dives here sometimes.
