Scott, Blue Cavern is @ the E. end of the Wrigley Marine Preserve, to me (the preserve) is a little like a dive into the past, it begins with an abundance of unharmed and for the most part, nutrient healthy Macrocystis. What you see? is dense kelp beds (all local species) dotted by Lg and Sm sandy bottom 'aquariums' of BIG fish and big schools, sorry macro guy, GIANT Kelp Bass and Sheephead. Eels, Bugs, Cowreys, Gorgonians, Abalone, all local fare and some pelagics, all taking advantage of the nutrient rich uppwellings and currents. No anchorage, and no take helps keep the diver traffic down as well. We'll be out at 2 Harbors over the 4th Holiday, come out on the Express, we'll pick you up @ the dock, and be running a few 'live boat' teams into the preserve, no research, just fun dives.
