The Fox Island West Wall has a lot of octopus living on it if you look hard. The other part of it is that there is no current on this wall but it is best to plan your dive at slack after flood for best visibility (I've gotten 45+ feet). The wall is small and kind of hard to find, but if you have good visibility, then swim out and look for a sunken buoy that is about 10 or 15 feet underwater and you should be able to see it. Descend on that to land right on the wall. The wall is only about 100 feet long so after swimming up and down it 4 or 5 times you might get bored. If you swim over the top of the wall and keep swimming I've found a sea pen forest which is pretty cool, but other than the wall being small, this is a very nice dive.
