We dove the north end for a sand/rock entry at about 2pm. Watch your step, the rocks are slippery, short swim out to the right side of the cove and dropped down in 30' of water with 70'+ vis. We followed along the coastline because there were a few boats further out- so bring a float. Large schools of fish feeding, the usual Big Island critters, eels and a 6' eagle ray coasted by. We followed along the coastline until we reached a marker buoy and then slowly made our way back, zigzagging along the reef until we reached the curve of the cove. Exit was easy, surf was calm, just watch the slippery walks like you did on the way in. Bathrooms nearby, close to Kona and dive shops. As usual, don't leave valuables in the car- we emptied our backpack onto the front seat of the car to show we just had snacks. There is a wanderer population in the bushes but they kept to themselves. Great dive.
