Evaluation

*Average:    3.28
Ok, I'm not too sure the aerial photo does this site justice. I never used the entry shown. From a large park facility building, looking at it from the parking lot, go to the beach to the left of the building and enter there (waves here are a lot smaller, too). There's a nice reef when you first enter, a trench about 75 yards out that goes to about 80-85', then another reef beyond the trench at about 175 yards aka the 2nd reef. The first time I dove this site it was pretty murky, spooky and I felt like shark bait. The 2nd time vis was pretty good and, looking back up from the bottom of the trench, was a sight to behold. Lots of puka's (holes) in the side of the trench that are large enough for turtles to sleep in. The 2nd reef is great since it is fairly undisturbed and not many folks go all that way to dive it. There can be a current out here so watch out for that. Don't forget your dive flag!!
