I've snorkeled here multiple times and dove here recently. I've never had a great experience. The reef and animal life are great but getting to them is horrid. The rock entry makes hauling gear tough, the surf is unpredictable. I'm a new diver. I was in a group of 5 divers, only TWO came out not bleeding and cut up or not needing stitches. Personally, I lost a booty, a fin, a snorkel and cracked my mask on the rocks. Despite the wicked surf getting in and out...if you're experienced this is an awesome dive! Lots of beautiful things to see, lots of fish. There is an arch if you go out past the sand patch. Good luck, wear booties and gloves, watch for sea urchins and waves.
