09/10/2007 Anonymous (Avg: 2.71 Review) - I tried snorkeling here but there were lots of ocean motion and it made the water cloudy. Only saw a couple of fish. I'm sure it would have been better at a more calmer time.

05/13/2005 Gary Harmon (Avg: 2.51 Review) - Better for people watching. Love to snorkel, Gary

01/01/2003 Pete Hackett (Avg: 3.25 Review) - Visibility not that good, 20 feet max. Explored out to breakers, 1/4 mile and nothing over 20 feet deep. Disappointing.
