Dove here on July 8, 2013 as part of AliiDiveVentures.com private guided shore dive excursions. Entry points vary by the year as sand moves and changes the shoreline a bit. Pick something that looks easy. Sand entry to the south and north of site photo, you will still need to walk over submerged lava rock until deep enough to put on fins, so booties are a must. The previous posts are accurate, the north route seems a bit more interesting, we did 2 tank here and would go back again and again. When heading out, take a slight WNW direction and you swim right into a turtle cleaning station, continue a little further north and you fine caves, chimney's and arches.
