This is a great crabbing place. Most often called the "North Jetty," this site has lots of crab, few fish, and incredible tides. Diving during slack is important if you don't want to walk a long way. Vis was around 15 feet when we went (Dec 12) and we came up with a goody bag full of crab. If you stop by the Scuba shop in Florence, they can give you maps of the underwater showing depths and such. Surface swim to the green buoy just south of entry, then go down. This will ensure you have plenty of air where the crabbing is good.
