This site is located at the southern side of Kealakekua Bay, makai of the old cattle lift. There's a notch in the reef at the right side of the park (facing the ocean) that makes for an easy entry. The Captain Cook monument is located straight across the bay. The reef here consists of (almost) unbelievably large coral heads. Visibility is generally excellent, but the dive is shallow (20-30 feet). I generally go out, then left (just going out ends you up in the sand flats that comprise the middle of the bay). Back on shore, be sure to pet the donkey, and bring some healthy food!
