My father, wife, and myself dove this site in May of 2011. We were told by a local dive shop in Wiakaloa that if the wind and surf pick up and the water is breaking over the entry point, don't dive the site. It was a bit windy and a little choppy, however the dive was excellent. Turtles, fish of all kinds, and lava tubes. This site was beaming with yellow tangs, butterfly fish, and eels. When we exited the water, the wind had picked up and waves were breaking over the entry/exit point which made for a very risky and very tough exit. We dove the site at around 12 noon that day, when the island winds generally pick up. We went back two days later and dove it at about 8am and the entry and exit were as simple as could be. One of our favorite dives sites!
