My husband and I dove here on November 8, 2009. There have been big swells on the island recently. We like diving in Puako but the wind hit. So, we tried diving at Alua Beach. We dove here last summer as well, but had problems with lots of boats going over head, which was a problem. However, today there wasn't much boat traffic. The dive was nice. We stayed along the left edge and went out around the buoy. There was lots of fish life and the visibility was fairly good.
