Went in August 2012 to the Barview Corner (part of the Barview Park) where the water coming in from the jetty hits the curve. Good parking, not so good entry. You have to scramble over the large boulder jetty rocks, but that's almost typical for an Oregon dive. Did this dive with my husband and uncle. I would recommend this with only one partner, because visibility was only about 5 feet and it made it harder for partners to keep track of each other. Right off the bat my fin lost it's brand new spring strap, and we spent a good ten minutes searching the shallows for that. Found it and went on with the dive. Dove to 25-30ft depth. Got a couple clams, saw lots of small crabs. Current is good here, but navigable. Could be a good drift spot up to the Three Graces if someone wanted to go that far.
