 Additional Information

English (Translate this text in English): The dive: Swim out a minute then hang right and find the 30 ft contour. Swim a few minutes until you find the shallow wall (4 mins or so). Pass this wall start going down over the boulder field (bottoms at 65 ft or so) and stay along that coutour continuing NW. A short while - 12 mins from the beach - you start seeing the bedrock at the start of the wall. Crenelated at first, angle down to say 95 ft. When you reach the cable, swim just a bit further then go down deep. Bottoms well below 250 ft, on the chart says almost 300 ft. Overhanging skyscraper type wall in places. I have hit 234 ft.
