Recommended type of dive: Boat and Kayak

How to dive this site: If anchoring your boat, you should dive here only at slack. Otherwise a live boat or tethered kayak is recommended. There is a series of rock reefs out from shore starting at 25 - 30' and descending down past 130'. The rock walls are home to many rockfish, greenling and lingcod. Be attentive in expecting the cracks and crevices, this site is known to be home to several Giant Pacific Octopus. Look for the piles of crab and clam shells, which give away their hiding spots.

If diving from a kayak launch from Possession Point State Park to the north and paddle south to Possession Point. Descend down close to shore and head southeast to a depth you are comfortable with. Remember to display a dive flag and an alpha flag which ever way you dive here since this is a high boat traffic area and a well liked spot for fishermen. HAZARDS: Deep depths, current, limited visibility, boat traffic and fishing line.
