Visited Netarts twice. First dive would have to be one of the best my husband and I have been on. Second visit would be one of the worst dives!!! First dive at Netarts August 18, 2012: Dove to right of boat ramp first, it stayed shallow and current was very fast, so we exited quickly to dive to the left of the boat ramp. This was the BEST decision! Dove to depth of 26 ft. at slack to outgoing tide. Visibility was 10ft. Entered past the dock by the bathrooms. There were TONS of spiky prickleback sea cucumbers, red with spikes, saw a Rockfish, and picked up 8 crabs (though we had to throw back all but 3). It was warm water with a temp on the bottom of 61 degrees. The aquatic life was beautiful! Second dive to Netarts was September 30, 2012 awful. Visibility less than 5 feet. Dove to 32ft depth. It was a good thing we had flashlights, but even then not much to see. This time it was cold, 48 degrees on bottom. I would still recommend this dive.
