This was my first dive on the Big Island and, since I live on Oahu, this is sooo awesome. I dove this twice in a day on 32% which was an awesome dive. The locals said vis wasn't but 50ft but their version of 50ft just add 100ft to that and that is what vis was. I was down at 130 and could look up and see the sun. Both dives were nice but I felt pretty uneasy when another diver asked to dive with us and he didn't even have a buddy or a pony bottle -- C'mon guys, use your heads and remember that your life isn't ever worth losing for a stupid dive. There were some cool blocks that say ALOHA at 30ft off to right of entry. Remember to plan your dive and dive your plan -- you can easily exceed your deco limits here, so use your brain!
