This is pretty classic Hawaii diving. We did it as a checkout dive upon arriving in Maui, in preparation for more serious diving with Ed Robinson...Molokini, Lanai Cathedrals, etc... We enjoyed it enough to go back later though as well for a couple of reasons. For one, it's very easy to park there, and the entry is quick and easy. Facilities are decent with bathroom and shower. Plus, we wanted some good classic fish photos and this is a VERY shallow dive (maybe 20' mostly) so the lighting was good for photography. All the basic fish and coral are there. Saw a nice little ray once, as well. Really nothing special in a way, just a good easy entry/exit with all the basic Hawaiian fish. Good spot to adjust your gear, figure out your weight, etc....
