This was the last dive I got to do with my father when he was visiting in Feb 2006 (he passed away on 06-04-07 and will be missed). It was a super duper easy entry, navigation was a snap, and heard whales…and they were close. Vis was about 80 ft due to that 40 days of rain we'll never forget. Saw a manta ray, and LOTS of crabs!!!! Not too sure if they are protected in this area. If you don't do this one while on the Big Island, you're robbing yourself!
