As you drop into the deepest part of the main tank be careful to keep your position while you...

    Long Point

    This was a great dive off close to the YMCA camp where many people also snorkel. As you enter the water there is a cliff that you swim towards, to the right about 500 yards is the beach and to the left is a drop to about 3,000 feet.

    Red Bluff

    This site was a relatively steep slope with many large rock formations that are covered in kelp. The site is filled with nooks and crannies to explore as you make your way through the beautiful kelp surrounded by Garabaldi and schools of small fish shimmering in the sunshine.

    Empire Landing

    Great site for the last dive of the day. The max depth is 40 feet. The topography is a good contrast with shallow white sand to the North and a 20 foot vertical cliff going directly into the water to the South. In the sand there are many rays and skates to see swimming gracefully from grass patch to grass patch. At the base of the cliff is a nice kelp forest to explore with...

    Sea Tiger

    This was a site with a big surge no matter where you went. There wer beautiful kelp forests that would be great in good visibility. Fish were scarce and the water was cold.

    Sea Lion Spot

    Wow, this site has a ton of sea lions. As soon as the boat pulled up and rang the bell on board at least 200 sea loins ran off the beach and ito the water to play. As you dive here the sea lions come out of nowhere, put their noses in your face and disappear just as quick leaving only a trail of bubbles. The site also has big kelp forests.
