Went out on the last day of our Divemaster class. The lifeguard said conditions were too bad for a dive, but we went anyway. Surf was 5-6 feet over the reef (right side of the area), but calm in the middle. Fairly easy, but long swim to the site, descended at the edge of the reef and swam out to avoid the surf. Visibility wasn't great 15-25'. Not much to see until you get to the caverns. Used the broken statue as a waypoint - 270 degrees from the statue over the reef will take you right to some caverns. They were pretty spectacular - long swim throughs, interesting formations - one of my buddies says there are usually reef sharks hanging out in one of the caverns, but none seen today. Didn't see any turtles either, but overall, a very nice dive that I will bring other divers to.
