    The Barge is an interesting dive because it's a very different ecosystem. The decaying
    wood makes for lots of tube anemones (which means lots of Rainbow Nuds). And there
    are more Black-Eyed Hermit Crabs there than anywhere else I've been. But the silt
    from the decaying wood means it's the only place in Monterey where you can have a
    genuine siltout, so little modified frog kicks are a good idea.

    I posted some info here: http://www.garlic.com/~triblet/swell/gps.html
    Dont' worry about the "GPS", my info includes how to find it by eyeball.
    Be VERY careful swimming out on the surface as there's a lot of boat traffic just outside
    of where The Barge is.

    It's in 63'.

    Be sure to make a lap around it at the limits of vis in the sand -- there are some
    interesting critters that live out there.
