I DM a boat last summer that dove this site every time. It is a great site for the experienced diver. The wall is amazing, kind of like rock climbing under water. We have seen Brown Trout at 20 + inches. Incredible dive when looking into the abyss of Lake Tahoe. Please do not exceed 90 feet if recreational dive. The altitude combined with water temps puts you at a theoretical depth of 126 feet. Be Safe.
