On Sunday dive the wreck "Baja California" (WWII wreck with plenty of artifacts) and the Air Force Tower (home of over 1/2 dozen 300+ pound jewfish). Lobster season ends the next week, so get them fresh while you can. Fishing and spearfishing are allowed, and they will either clean and ice your catch, or cook it for you! Great food with short Ft.
