Interests: Octopus, Sarcastic Fringehead, Scorpionfish, Pipefish, and baby Horn sharks are plentiful here. At night an entirely different community of Marine Life comes out: Shrimp, various Crabs, Exotic Nudibranchs, Bat Rays, Rockfish, and Eels. Baby fish hide under algae in the "detritus zones". Rockfish congregate around the "monument". New exotic species are always popping up!
Suggestions: Bring a Beach Mat to change on (in the parking lot), plenty of fluids and a snack or meal if you're doing more than one dive.
Best time to Dive: Anytime! Avoid diving in high surf or strong North / North West swells.
Visibility: 10 - 35ft
Warnings: The climb up the stairs and the walk through the sand can be slightly strenuous. The canyon can get very cold with a thermocline around 40ft.
Depth recommendations: 30 - 60ft are where most of the points of interest are for this dive site. Apply prudent judgement and consideration of your experience level and scope of training when planning and executing your dives.
Safety: Use of a Float, Flag, Anchor and Descent line are required for Beach Diving. Cell Phone, Oxygen Kit and First Aid Kit are always recommended.
