Rented kayaks from Kona Boys up in town, one equipped for dive gear stow. Took off from the old wharf and paddled to Capt. Cook; the snorkeling here is the best. After snorkeling I dawned my gear and dropped down and around the point. Great dive and interesting to see the deep water reef slope of corral from about 50'-100' where the sand started is all dead. Great structure, caves and tubes as I rounded the point to the north. Many large White Tip sleeping.
