We had done some other diving around the island and landed here one day, thinking it was a good place to access the beauty of the bay. Unfortunately, it wasn't clear to me that the reef is about 6 ft deep for about 1/3 of a mile. We swam and swam and swam, finally dropped down to see if we could do something other than float on our backs and kick. We finally got out to a drop off of 30 ft after burning through quite a bit of air with the swimming. By the time we reached the second drop off to 60 ft it was time to turn around. Next time I would kick out farther and head in a direction toward the Cook monument. The snorkeling was amazing, I'd highly recommend this place for a beach lunch and snorkel day. you'll pretty much have it to yourself except for the neighborhood roaming dog. Watch out for the a**hole who owns the dog. The dog was super sweet and then he showed up to take her home, he grabbed her roughly and kicked her several times. It was heartbreaking to hear the poor thing yelping all of the way back. We left somewhat traumatized.
