After reading all the warnings about this site, honestly I thought I was irresponsible for diving here with my 18 year old son, and my heart raced as we entered the water. But it was calm as glass, and we had ZERO issue getting in the water. Had to be one of the top dive experiences of my 36 years diving. Visibility top to bottom (35+ feet), such amazing colors, monster crabs, amazing kelp canopy. Swimming back there was some surge we rode into the shallow water, what a great ride! My advise, do what we did, wait till there are no waves, and have a great dive!
