Lots of parking on HWY 1 and not a very long haul to the beach. There was a group of 6 divers exiting and 2 free divers there, as well. It was low tide and the entry/exit was easy. Went out right of the point and stayed in 35-40 feet - lots to look at and there are some cool reefs. Nudibranch, few crab, stars, and lots of rockfish - bagged 2 yellow, 2 perch, 1 china and 1 black on 1 tank. It is advised that you DO head back underwater as I came up and had to do the hard swim thru the kelp at low tide - not fun! Be careful around the point as I started catching currents going towards the rocks. Awesome site for underwater viewing - just North of Point Lobos.
