We dove 1/1/2016 and were very lucky to drive up and see only ankle high waves. very enjoyable dive, lots to see within a short swim from shore. Start on the North side of the beach swim on the south side of kelp. swim out on the side of the kelp. We did two dives one where we swam out a long ways, and the second we started about 75' from the beach. Both dives provided tons of fish and small stuff to explore. Will have to experience it when there is surf.
