Evaluation

*Average:    3.02
This is a great site for both beginning and intermediate divers. Advanced divers may find it boring unless they explore some of the caverns and swim up some of the old lava tubes. I have dove this site at least 20 times in the past year and never had any problems, other than a tiger shark scaring the crap out of me…but then again I should have done a little looking into the cavern before I decided to be between him and the only exit! There is a good turtle cleaning station on the reef to the left of the apartment building in about 12 - 15 ft of water. I actually like to dive this site because there aren't many people on the beach at all. In fact I was there over Memorial Day weekend with the family and there were 50 people max on the beach. Have never had any issues with the car or anything being stolen. Standard Hawaii anti-theft precautions apply as with any other dive site. Great site for a night dive as well, although there is not a lot of lights to orient yourself on the surface. Lots of great marine life at night, which includes some sharks, octopus, and turtles.
