11/06/2007 Anonymous (Avg: 3.51 Review) - Go to Cholla Bay to Pinto Point, and you can dive on the north or south side of the point. Water temp was 78 degrees F. Air temp 80-85 degrees F. I took a group of new divers down and they had a blast. Water was warm, and the entry was easy at high tide. Make sure you dive as close to high tide as possible to avoid heavy currents. Feeding the fish with conch was a blast. We had many different species eating out of our hands. Water visibility was great around the rocky areas. Sandy areas were murky but overall great for new divers. Shore dives are typically from 6-25 feet deep. Night dives have great bio illuminesscents. Best time is November. God Bless and have a great dive.

04/22/2007 Sarge (Avg: 3.42 Review) - If you go to Casa Del Captian restaurant and look over the railing, you'll see a basin behind a hotel. You can access this basin with your vehicle through the hotel parking lot. IF you have a sturdy pair of dive boots, the entry is easy. Great area for night diving for those with experience! Lots of animal life and some small vertical walls about 40 yards out off the entry. Not too many people seem to know about the area, and as such, we usually have it all to ourselves. As with any diving in the area, tide is important, so check the charts. Visibility is sometimes 40+, but usually hovers around 30'. Good dive site if you take the time to find it.

11/15/2006 Mr. Moose (Avg: 3.02 Review) - Pelican Point is between Sandy Beach and Cholla Bay. Don't go to Rocky Point for Scuba Diving. Dive if you are bored or just can't get enough of being underwater. Site: Pelican Point. Rocky Entry. Need strong booties and good sense of balance. The best of 5 sites I have dove. Good amount of sea life including tasty rock scallops. Fish small to medium size. Viz 30 feet or less.

12/21/2005 Shaun Rost (Avg: 2.48 Review) - OK , but you would not make a special trip for the scuba diving. If you are there anyway, it's an easy dive with lots of rays!
