This was the last year the site could be scuba surveyed. Depth on this transect went from about 34 feet (MLLW) to about 20 feet. Substrate at the western end of the transect was gravel-sand until it converts to all sand towards the end (1:17 seconds). Small woody debris was present where there was gravel (0:17-0:23 seconds). All species of seaweeds are gone and no invertebrates were seen. Schools of Pacific sand lance (Ammodytes hexapterus) were at the site.
