Now within the Pt. Vicente Marine Protected Area, the site has officially been renamed Pelican Cove. No hunting is allowed, and nothing may be removed from the water.

Just had one of my most memorable days here. I'm a freediver/spearfisherman and went out on a solo mission. The vis was great, 20-30 feet, but seemed to be better inside the outer kelp (100yrds off shore). Went to south side around protruding rocks, and fished for awhile. Lots of life in/around rocks about 30ft deep at the farthest rock. Just before I was going to call it a day, out of nowhere a giant sea turtle came upon me. The curious creature hung around for 15 mins allowed me to get about 3ft from him before we parted ways. Great experience! The hike back up isn't so bad. It's steep but the well built path makes it a little easier.

Also known as Cardiac Hill because of the trail to the shore. This site is well worth the workout. It is similar to Old Marineland (next door). Best diving is to the point on the left side of the bay. It has a large reef with kelp and many fish.
