Fairly easy to get in but the swell came up after a little while. Nobody there at 7:30 am, but when I got out an hour later it seemed the whole island showed up. Makes it difficult to get in the water with all the newbie snorkelers trying to get in and out. Great coral and lots of fish but not many eels. Only saw 1 white mouth. Other divers saw a large snowflake but I couldn't fid it. Saw a blue fin trevalley, raccoon butterfly and 4 spot butterfly. I only dove to the right of the ALOHA blocks on the sandy bottom. Great place but expect crowds.
