We heard that this site has good vis sometimes, but this time it was around 5 ft. You have to swim quite a ways out (past the surfers) to get to the other side of the reef (we didn't make it that far). We scrubbed the dive after a short while, poor vis, very shallow. But the waves weren't bit but parking is hard to find, get there before 8am and park at the end (south) of the parking lot.
