This boat dive contains a seamount with canyons. The surfaces of the rocks are covered in invertebrates which bring bright colors to the area. Cobalt sponges, coralline algae, and pink and orange strawberry anemones inhabit most of the surface. Blue rockfish, myriad rockfish, blunted nose sculpins, cabezon, and lingcod are also common sights at this location.
    Currents and depth at this location could present hazards to divers. It is important to pay close attention to the time you are under water as well as the depth. Portions of this dive exceed 100-feet in depth. This dive is full of life and color and makes a great trip for the experienced diver.
