*Average:    4.00
This is an absolutely great dive for the beginner diver (me as of this review). Very easy entry with a large and shallow protected area. Inside the cove depths probably average in the 30's getting into the 40's in places. I've never done the rocks that form the breakwater but would like to see the deeper water on the far side. There is a huge anchor we came upon in the middle of the cove. It was massive and had been there long enough to have developed a little ecosystem. Overall a fun dive and one that would make a good choice if some other spots are too rough.
