This site is as bad as often as it is good, and there are often a ton of snorkelers and beginner divers in the area. The sand falls are nice, when they are running. Vis can go bad very quickly, and the cold currents make at least a 7mm full suit a must during these times.

Large variety of fish to see in the protected area near the rocks. Bottom as 40’ sand but at submarine cliff DM took me down to 60’ see Whitetip reef sharks that hang out under an overhang area. They were not there that morning.

Great dive, went in March, visibility was about 20-25 ft, LOTS of fish, sand-falls were beautiful.

AMAZING dive close-in to the beach. ([50yds offshore starts a gentle slope that drops to a ledge around 80’ where you’ll find tranquil sand falls and all kinds of sea life!)
