This was a great dive once you got in the water but the entry was a bit tricky. The surf was a bit rough and getting in and out on the lava rocks ended up in some scrapes. Once we got in though we got out to the shelf where it dropped to about 30 feet off of an old lava flow. From there we swam south swimming in and out of the canyons made by the lava flow. Lots of swim throughs and great vis. Saw tons of fish and found a turtle resting in the rocks. Heard there were garden eels a bit deeper but I didn't get to check it out. Great on a calm day but wouldn't recommend on a rough day because of the entry.
