This is my favorite shore dive site. Find the large pipe which extends straight out, on the left side of the area. It starts out about 20 to 40 feet away from the shoreline. You will know it when you see it. It is supported just off of the bottom by concrete pier blocks. As you follow the pipe out (It ends at about 95 feet down), look under the supports. That is where you will find the Giant Pacific Octopus curled up. You can shine your flashlight in there and perhaps see a set of eyes looking back at you.
