We went on April 24, 2013. There is no parking that is convenient, but we had our friends drop us off next to the Sheraton where there is shore access via a path along the golf course - from there it is a very short walk to an easy entry. (another option that we have used in the past is to drop off one buddy with the gear at the golf course location, and then park at whaler's village and have the driver walk back from there.) Conditions were good relative to other sites in West Maui. Lots of fish, we saw at about 6 turtles, and we got to swim with four spotted eagle rays. Very cool. Be aware that there is often (if not always) a medium current coming back around Black Rock (when you are returning northward), so make sure to allow sufficient time and energy to swim back against the current around the point. Dive is not very deep, so you can have plenty of bottom time. If you are diving in West Maui, this is a must dive.
