This is a fun site but due to regular currents I would only recommend fairly advance divers dive here. Head to the south side of the beach and continue south over the reef. Most of the better parts of the reef are in only 15 to 30 feet of water. Great site for turtles. As you're doing this dive be very conscious of the current, it usually pulls south. This current can make the swim back to the beach difficult to impossible. Might I suggest starting your dive just a little farther south at Pu'u Olai Beach (Little Beach) instead?
