Dove Black Sand beach the other day with visiting family members. If you get here early in the morning, the conditions are usually good. However, once 10am comes, vis will drop and the waves will start picking up. Diving to the right (towards Maluaka) is great with lots of structure and fish. The middle area is somewhat sparse. The area to the left can be snorkeled all the way around to Pu'u Olai, but only if the current is weak. Great fish, turtles, and even Pelagic fish come in on this side. There have been a few Tiger Shark sightings in the area, so use caution and don't dive it on murky days.
