This is a spot that I've only been to once. The former Windward Dive Center sponsored a club dive here, and I was responsible for leading several others on a dive at a site I'd never been to. We headed out toward the northwest (towards Rabbit Island). One word could summarize what I remember most about the dive: CURRENT! There were few fish, little reef, and lots of sand....with a strong current! After asking Keoki (who went there somewhat regularly), it turns out that current is a commonplace occurrence. Given the difficulty of the entry and parking, I've never been back.
