It has been a long time, but I have many fond memories of snorkeling then learning to scuba at Shark's Cove. It remains one of my favorite places on the island, and I'm going back for the first time this May--and this is on my list of places that I MUST go. I loved scuba diving here. You can do reef entries or beach entries, there are lava tubes (that I wouldn't recommend unless you are trained or are with someone who is trained in cave diving), and it's a lovely place to explore and play, especially for a beginner diver. I remember chasing little fish, watching the sparkles in the water at night, and even doing the dive without lights on a beautiful full-moon night. In 1981 this was a fantastic place to dive, and I am hoping it has remained so to this day.
