Evaluation

*Average:    3.52
Dove here 27 Oct 2008. The Locals call this place TOILET BOWL. I think that's because of the filling and draining of the hole between the arch and shore. Surf was moderate on first dive but started picking up on second dive. DO NOT try to exit the same place you entered the hole. Go south about 40 yards and get out on the point of rocks south of the little inlet. This is best if the surf comes up but be careful as this is for advanced divers only. Lots of fish, saw 2 pair of humu humu (the state fish) lots of butterfly fish and a couple fire angels. Spotted a very large Octopus out and about and played peek-a-boo for about 5 minutes then explored more and found another octo. No eels, so very disappointing. Lots of blue fin swimming by in the 50-60 ft range but didn't go past that as I was diving alone. Coral was in great shape and lots of caves to look into. Lots of locals drive by and go south about 3/4 to a mile and surf. Road is pickup or 4 wheel only! Will dive here again as long as swell is low.
