This area is not well-sheltered, but the open-water apsect allows for greater chances of seeing the local marine life. There are two spots you can enter. This entry is better for exploring the small cove. This entry is best for exploring the coast and point.

Awesome dive, lots of life more than Ogden and Ten Mile combined. Thousands of Urchins, more fish than Ogden, great coral. WATCH YOUR TIDES.....EXTREME CURRENTS RUN THROUGH THIS SITE. The topography of the bottom is unique enough to do 20 dives and not see everything. Lots of valleys to explore, had to go shallow as I had my 10 year old with me (she's limited to 40 feet) but the dive was no less incredible in the shallows.
