This is a tough dive site due to the 150 yard walk to the cliff edge and the 150 foot vertical drop to get to the site. Conditions will be dangerous in the winter with exposure to the open ocean. The trail is difficult but manageable. The best time to dive is march/April on a calm day after the kelp forests have been torn away by the winter surf. Vis varies from 10-30feet. Jade can be found with diligent search and is worth the effort. Plan on doing at least two tanks as it is 1.5 hours from civilization. Plaskett creek campground is less than a mile away. Good luck on your jade hunt.
