Very easy to get to, parking is $5 for the day. Facilities for changing and washrooms. Entry is via a set of stairs onto shallow gravel bottom. Quite a swim out to even the closer wrecks. Horrible visibility - less than 4 feet! The algae bloom has started. Other than that, certainly the site has potential, but in our dive to 50' we did not find much to enjoy! Anemones and sea stars galore, if only you could see them from more than 3' away.... will have to come back next winter!
