I went scuba diving here on 10/5/2013. Average viz: 5-10ft/2-3m. Water temp: Over 85°F/29°C.

at first it was a nice dive on the surface as we got deeper the visability got worse. there were many angle fish and small yellow fish around the artificial reef car and bus. when we started to go to surface there was a swarm of jellys at our safety stop. this was very unplesant. the second dive we swam out to the bouy and decended down there was the same conditions on the second dive. we accended up and swam to shore the jellies were very bad on second dive.

my first dive was a shore dive there were jelly fish so we had suits on once below the surface jellies were not a problem. visability was poor there were a lot of divers at this spot so the sandy bottom was kicked up we did see the bus and trucks and the car as well as the boats and other

it is great for new divers. in sep there are jelly fish so wet suit is required. there is a lot of sights on the bottom and it is a quick drop off once in water. in sep the water was warm and there were plenty of fish around to look at and feed.
