Dove this site early on April 3rd. Had 4 days of great diving prior to that day. We got briefed on site by locals and gave it a shot. High tide and the waves were breaking on the last step of stairs. Entry was difficult but we managed to go to the right of stairs to get out. We swam out to just about the 1/4 mile buoy and went down to around 20-25ft. The current on the bottom was worse than the top. Viz about 2ft. My daughter was getting sea sick on the bottom, go figure. We decided to go in and nav our way to an exit point and were slammed on the rocks on the bottom. After we got out, the life guards had posted diving not recommended. Looks like a great place; just bum luck. Lots of nice shops around, but get there early or no parking.
