This was a very enjoyable site. My wife and I did two dives there in July of 2017. I have found this website to be an invaluable resource. We decided that the easiest entry would be to assemble our equipment and tanks by the water and float the BCDs out about 6 meters from shore to waste high water. There we put on our fins and BCDs and started to head out. Having our feet on the sand and lava rock without fins and a tank on our back made the entry super smooth. This is a nice snorkeling spot as well because there is probably about 100 meters of water no deeper than 3 meters. You need to kick out 100 to 150 meters to get to depth. There are some nice lava tubes to swim through between 6 and 10 meters of depth. We saw turtles and plenty of fish life. we didn't really get deeper than 12 meters and kept it nice and easy. This was an easy and relaxing site that is very close to Kailua Kona town center.
