Evaluation

*Average:    4.44
10/19/03-0830-Long walk (300 yards) down to beach. Had to dodge the morning joggers. Sandy beach entry. Snorkeled out approximately 100 yards to anchor required dive flag in the sand. Treated to a Devil Scorpion Fish on the move so the brightly colored fins easy to see. Followed coast south with little fish life but amazing corals. Wouldn't suggest going south unless you want to stay real shallow. Reached sandbar and turned back north. Found large Hawaiian Green Sea Turtle sleeping and a large White-Mouthed Moray right next to him. Small octopus played hide & seek with us. Back near buoy, turned west and fish & coral improved greatly. Found juv. Rockmover (Dragon Wrasse) bouncing along the sand along with many tiny peacock flounders. Not many landmarks so navigation is necessary.
