This is one of the few shore-access sites on Saturna, besides East Point, that looks interesting. It's on East Point Road near Winter Cove Park. On a chart, the bottom drops quickly to around 30 feet deep and then there is a flat area stretching out for about 200 meters. Then a long, shallow reef pops up before the bottom drops away steeply again to over 100 feet. On the surface, I could see no sign of this shallow reef (no kelp, breakers, etc.). This would make it a bit harder to reach by swimming on the surface, because you won't know when you have reached it. I didn't have a compass with me, so swimming underwater would be a challenge as well. When I was here in the early morning, the water was glass-calm. Now in the afternoon, there was a bit of a nasty swell blowing in from the open Straight of Georgia (I could see the Tsawassen ferry terminal in the distance). Just getting in the water was a challenge. The breakers tossed me around quite a bit, scratching up my camera housing dome port, shredding my knee pads and knocking loose a fin strap. After making it through and putting myself back together, I descended down a slope of boulders and rubble to flat sand at 30 feet deep. Visibility was less than 15 feet and there was a noticeable current running. I decided not to swim out to the deep dropoff (drifting lost in the middle of the straight spooked me), and instead just explored the shallow boulder-slope. Despite the current, there was hardly any life here. I've seen more in the shallows in Saanich Inlet and Howe Sound. Of course there was a variety of seastars, a few red rock crabs, a lingcod and a school of perch at the edge of visibility. I didn't see any sponges, tunicates, anemones, or anything like that. There were a few tiny hermit crabs and tide-pool sculpins, but that's about it. If I ever come here again, I might get a compass, grow some balls and try for the drop-off, but then again, I might not. If you want to see something impressive, go to nearby Winter Cove marine park and walk the short trail to Boat Passage. Currents of up to 8 knots zip through the narrow gap. I've never seen salt water move so fast. I almost thought of diving it, but it's only 10 feet deep.
