I love this site. I wear my gear down into the small cove, put on my fins and fall in. Kick out and to the right, drop down and enter the lava tube to the right. Way in the back you can find sleeping turtles and maybe a large puffer fish. Look carefully on the cave floor for brittle stars between the rocks. Just outside the cave in the debris field, I've seen gold-laced nudibranchs, banded shrimp and a devil scorpion fish. All within a 20' radius. Also lots of interesting shells both occupied and unoccupied. You can easily do 2 dives here and not get bored.
