As you can tell by the year it was quite a while ago, but I remember like it was yesterday. No bones about it, this is an intermediate to advanced dive; I just happened to make it as a beginner without a local guide. The first time we went was in late spring, early summer, when the big waves are coming in from this side of the island. The swell was 6-8ft and the waves were breaking on the rocks at about 10-15. It was not for the faint of heart. The climb down was nice, the tunnel was a cool experience and the walk out to the entry was over some even rock. We jumped in off the spit, timing the entry with the swell. This was one of those dives where you put your fins on after you are on the bottom. The life was interesting and varied and it was a wonderful dive. I haven't read all the posts, but it is useful to know that there are two exits from this entry. One to the right of the entry, and is only for the serious diver/swimmer. One of my group was picked up by a wave and not so gently deposited on a boulder (he walked way with everything but his pride intact). The other exit is farther to the left. You hook around the outcropping and back into 'Eternity Beach' (THE beach scene in From Here to Eternity). It's a nice sloping exit and quite a few turtles hang out in the area. Remember, look but don't touch.
