Its been a while since I commented on this dive site. I think its only fair to give a more accurate account. This is a very popular Training Location. Meaning that on any given weekend, you are bound to run into classes before 10am. I normally don't dive this site unless it's either night, or after work during the weekdays because of the number of people that go here. Entry and conditions change with every day so please know that what might be great one day, can be horrible the next. It's a south facing beach so hard to get lost. There are a few entrances to the crevices and at least a couple tunnels and caves that I don't recommend getting into without training as I have had to rescue a few people that got stuck. I absolutely love this site for night diving and never get tired. I have seen every creature from moray eels, wolf eels, seal, sea lions, octopi, brown shrimp and other smaller shrimp, leopard shark, horn shark, bat rays, thornback rays, sting rays, and hundreds of other creatures both big an small. However, expect to see nothing and be happy if you catch a glimpse of anything as I have gone some times and seen ZERO. I have likely dove this site over 300 times and as I said, its always different.
