When you enter the water, the shore slopes of very gradually. You can drop down in about 15 feet of water, swim east over the sand, and slowly descend towards the canyon. Or, you can do a long surface swim to conserve air, and drop down at the canyon edge. Sheephead, black sea bass, nudibranchs, stingrays, halibut, sea hares, scorpion fish, and piddocks are common, as well as sea pens, sea pansies, sand dollars, starfish... This is a great dive site but you must be patient and look carefully for the life, it is not always obvious. This is a great dive for beginners, but be sure you have a compass, there are not many landmarks underwater. Showers, restrooms, and picnic areas convenient. Watch for the southeast current.
