I found it unusual that this this ocean hole is close to town surrounded by residential homes. Easy to get to. But it is not well maintained. there was trash & debris surrounding it. Such a shame!

A bit intimidating due to the depth, but worth it so swim with all the different fish. Remember to bring some bread to really see them in action. Kids had fun jumping from the different levels.

Stopped in, you can jump from a higher point to the right of the entrance there is a path and a jumping point. Saw some cool colored fish, very high salt content. Packed a lunch and ate at the picnic tables at the park

Had fun jumping in and swimming but was a bit surprised by how murky the water appeared, at least at our visit. A worthwhile experience which requires somewhat limited amount of time.

Supposedly 600 feet deep, but our group members( the brave ones) only swam on the surface. Lots of introduced fish swim for bread or crackers, much like boat dock ducks and fish. Good place to rest and enjoy the scenery, lots of locals come here...More
