Virago Point with 49th Parallel Dive Charters.

 

This spot some folks refer to as lingcod alley, and for good reason. Lots of big Grand Ma and Grand Pa Lings here. Anchoring close to shore on a shelf about 40 feet down leads to a wall that drops off 70 to 90 feet. No vacant real estate here, thick Pulmose, kelp greenlings and sea urchin cover the wall and sandy bottom. Current is a big issue here, don't miss the slack be in the water 20 minutes before slack and out by no later that 20 minutes after. A live boat is the safest way to dive this location.

Some of my best photo's have come from this location at the right time of year it's crystal clear with spectacular backgrounds.
