I dive Barview with 2 friends on a regular basis throughout the year. Usually a 2 tank dive at the Tower at high slack. The current can be pretty bad if you don't hit the slack, and vis really drops then too. Vis is usually ~10 feet but can get as good as 25. Entry and Exit can be very hard, and I got a nasty gash on the back of my head from a swell tossing me back against the rocks once. If the ocean is calm, and the exchange small, enter at the tower and head west. If the bottom comes up to 35', head back, you're getting out too far, but we almost always see nice Lingcod out there, and usually limit out in 1 dive. Usually a good spear fishing dive. Mainly for experienced and athletic divers who don't mind climbing over big rocks quickly after a dive to get out of sometimes heavy swells. Hard, but rewarding.
