We actually used this site to drop the kayaks (with our scuba equipment) in to dive at the Capt Cook monument. The kayak trip is only about 1/2 hour and makes for a nice morning. So this is actually a Capt Cook memorial dive site report. We dropped down to 120' feet and still saw coral life. I found an anchor in about 155' of water but didn't spend much time as the nitrogen was beginning to take it's affect. As in most of our shore dives, the most interesting part is in relatively shallow water. We dove this site twice once to the left (looking out from the monument) and once to the right. Right was better at about 20'.
