A wonderfully beautiful dive site at the base of a rugged rocky bluff that hints at the structure below. Rocky crevices, boulders and ledges provide a life encrusted footing for thick bull kelp forests while offering channels for divers to navigate. Large colonies of urchins, colorful sponges and other brilliant invertebrates literally cover the rocks outside the point. Schools of black rockfish congregate below the kelp mats while bright sculpin, greenlings and other treasures find shelter among the reef. The reef extends from the surf zone to about 50ft where the kelp and rock gives way to sand and shell, and the currents of the Straight.

A planned flooding current can carry you along the reef to Bachelor Rock to end the dive if desired.
