I am very familiar with this site as a free diver as well as scuba. Overall I rate this site as an advanced dive. The entry is fairly technical, especially if there is any surf. The topography is complex, especially if you attempt to enter any caves (use extreme caution whenever entering any overhead environment). Finally, planned as an entry at 5 Graves and exit at Makena Landing watch your air consumption, it's a lot of swimming and you are bound to be a hover if there is any surge or current. Animal life is amazing here. I recommend this as an early morning dive, surf comes up (and vis goes down) as the afternoon approaches.
