Much better than cove dives. Bottom composition conducive to good vis. and not silty, and pounded like the coves. We had 25-30 ft. in July. Shallow dive for long bottom time: we got over an hour, could have stayed longer but got cold sitting still taking pictures. Easy to navigate, easy to enter. I especially enjoyed the fields and fields of sea pens. Lots of critter filled eel grass covering the pipe. We dove it on the slack before flood and the slight current at the end of our dive took us right back to the entry. I really enjoyed this mellow dive. Great dive for newbies.
