Reluctantly tried this site 01/02 because it was too rough to dive in other sites. Luckily found someone who dives this bay often as a photographer and got his advice. We walked along right side of bay along rock ledge almost to Witches Brew point. Snorkeled out and away from beach until found the cable which runs along bottom. Followed cable until it crosses a sandy spot from one reef to another. At the far end of this second reef we descended to 55ft. This is where we saw 6 sea turtles. Followed cable back to shore. Most divers don't go far enough in following cable from shore. Get away from the crowd and see the turtles!
