Miss it sometimes too. I haven't been there in awhile, even though I have been on the Olympic II more than any other wreck. I'd have to check my logbooks, but I'm sure it's around 50 dives. It's always nice to see images with blue water there. I've been there when it was Braille diving at best, and also during the best conditions I've ever seen in California. We had clear, blue water at 74F during an El Nino year and the visibility was over 100 feet. My buddies got in the water first and said they could clearly see the wreck from the surface. I thought they were kidding until I joined them. I could see the sand 98 feet below! The next day Dive-n-Surf chartered the Westerly for an Olympic dive. One lucky diver got a picture of a small, eight foot Great White above the wreck with the bottom of the Westerly in the background.
