Just as an update to a previous post in 2012. I did make it back to this site in Jan. 2103. It's still easy in and out, but I was pretty surprised at the change in the dive site in just over a year. The topography is still interesting (of course) but the coral seems to have taken a real beating. Much of it was bleached and broken. Also, until you get quite a ways out from the pier, the fish life seems to have vanished probably due excessive amounts of spear fishing (Milolii IS a fishing village)and they are down to even harvesting urchins at this point. We did see one spotted and one green moray, but other than some butterfly fishes, there wasn't much in the way of observable fish life. It's still worth the drive to dive it...in my opinion.
