Tried this one out with my two buddies at Cape Ann Divers' suggestion after a very average dive at Pebble Beach. Being from Cleveland and used to dismal Lake Erie conditions, this dive was what we had all hoped it would be. Snorkeled out along the left side and had a blast checking out all the sights. Dropped down farther out along the left wall and saw all kinds of stuff: a dogfish, schools of stripers, a very large torpedo ray (we had NO idea at the time that it was an electric ray, and we actually jostled it underneath its wings with our fins so we could get a better look at it. It apparently didn't care for that kind of treatment and came flying off the sand at us in a kind of bull rush. Too bad no locals were watching because they would have had a great time watching the three morons from out of town swim for their lives), lobsters, crabs, anemones, urchins, sand dollars, etc. Very good dive. We're used to the cold so that didn't bother us. The parking wasn't bad, either, as far as we were concerned, because you can't do this kind of diving off the beach in Ohio. We would have gladly parked a mile away and walked in.
