02/09/2009 Jim Dingess (Avg: 3.36 Review) - Snorkeled the reef to the left, which had lots of fish and a sea turtle. Didn't see anybody jumping in the water from the rocks, but watched out for them anyway. Best in the morning as the waves picked up the visibility was considerably reduced. Easy entry and exit, good shower and rest room facilities, near stores and dive shops if you need anything from them.

11/13/2006 Anonymous (Avg: 3.50 Review) - Lots of fun!

10/14/2005 Kendall Roberg (Avg: 4.51 Review) - This is a great site with neat channels in the reefs to dive in. I saw lots of turtles and a barracuda. I suggest going off to the reef on the left (the one shown in the middle photo below). This was a lot of fun diving in; just watch out for people jumping off the rocks (don't want them to land on you). Fun and easy spot to dive.

12/21/2004 Janet Shuldt (Avg: 3.50 Review) - I liked this dive because it was easy and relaxing -- that's just the way I like to dive. My husband likes to rough it, so wasn't too impressed. Lots of great facilities here, and perfect for a day on the beach!

05/13/2004 Bryan Heit (Avg: 3.58 Review) - Nice easy dive, good for night, but is very shallow. Best stuff we found was the reef along the small rock point separating Kamaole #2 & #3. Found several sleeping turtles under some rock ledges, and a few spiny lobsters. Did not see many fish at night, except for a few puffers.

05/30/2001 Al Mialkovsky (Avg: 3.04 Review) - Lots of checkout dives are done here so it's a very good spot for beginner divers to get out there without many concerns. There are restrooms and outside showers for rinsing off afterwards. I sort of came away without great feelings here, BUT, when I compare it to my diving spots in Oregon, there isn't a comparison.

The coral around the point is more interesting than the beach area.
