Evaluation

*Average:    1.91
Pray for Sets Beach (waves), renamed Pray for Sex Beach, aka, Yokohama Bay...a visually stunning white sand beach with a dramatic mountainous backdrop... Below, there is some interesting reef structure, but about 95 percent of the reef is dead and covered with algae. There are a few bright spots, including a school of pennantfish, bicolor anthias, and a few other species. There are few to no large game fish, and even the spinner dolphins appear to have abandoned the site. I went left, to the second ridge, ending in about 60 feet. Maybe the arch to the right would have been better? I had to endure a boat above trying to water ski with a surf board, and exited the water amidst four ATVs tearing up the beach without mufflers. Not exactly tranquil. Overall, not a great dive in my book....I'm happier with Kahe Point! Doubt I'll go back.
