I came to this website before heading to Oahu for a week around New Years 2007. I rented a scooter from Waikiki and drove out to this beach-- it was well worth it! I snorkeled almost every day I was there and this was the best snorkeling I encountered. The visibility was phenomenal! I saw an octopus, loads of typical colourful reef fish and two turtles. If you are going to snorkel at this site, you must swim all the way out to the end of the water pipes. And let me tell you, the water out there is SO warm. It's like a hot tub for the fish! The amount of sea life out there makes the long swim well worth it.
