A great day or night dive, the pier is home to a thriving population of marine and coral life.

We flippered out from a sandy area to the left of the new pier, opposite the pilings. Easy entry. Go on a sunny day & the colors of the sponges and soft corals will astound you! Easy swim and well worth the time.

The ocean makes up for everything.There was nothing open when we were there. We saw only few people around. We couldn't buy anything because everything was closed.

Dove with Soggy Bottom Divers, wonderful colors and lots of fish. Not a lot to do around the pier but the dive is something you must do
