This site seems understandably popular with picnickers, swimmers, kayakers, and divers. Regulations are posted on signs, and diving is conducted to the right of a pyramid-shaped marker, presumably to provide separation for dive ops. Restrooms and food concessions are close at hand. Local divers were helpful with information. The site offers ease of entry and egress. My son (Daniel) and I arrived at slack ebb, entered the water and noted the viz at 18-22 feet. Kelp was easily negotiated. We wore 6.5mm wetsuits and the water was warmer than I'd anticipated. The bottom appears to slope very gradually. Our dive was uncomplicated and we enjoyed a pleasant dive in relatively shallow water (<30 ft). Suspended particulates and occasional soupy conditions did not favor underwater photography that day. Once ashore, my wife, son and I enjoyed the view. Topside, Lovers Point itself is worthy of a postcard, a "Kodak moment", and we enjoyed our day. This appears to be a site that has its moments, and I hope to return to it on a day when we can observe more of what it offers in terms of resident marine life.
