Did the open water portion of my PADI BOW in Kauai with all four dives out of this location. Spent a significant amount of time exploring the reefs to the right and left of the entry. Fantastic marine life, including several turtles and many varieties of eels. November of 2000: Surge was minimal, almost no surf. Cove is, in general, very well protected. A very good beginner dive site.
