I dream about this place. This is the only place I am 100% comfortable diving with just my hubby and I. Here is the scoop, it is 2 dives. 1) your deeper dive, do first. Head out at a 1 pm heading to the right, then pass over Aloha rocks at about 30 feet, head to the wall. You can go as deep as you allow at the wall, we kept it to about 60. Turn around when you have more than 1/2 a tank left. We usually went back at 30 mins. dive 2) head out to the left about 11 am heading, go around and out and you will see completely different rounded corals. Again, turn back when you still have more than half a tank. Stay shallower than dive number 1. Bring a lunch. This is probably my favorite dive of all time.

My husband and I hooked up with another diving couple and met here about 11 am in Nov, 2012. Now that we know how to get in, we hope to go back this year. Lovely, and easy entry/exit. I would only do this when it is calm. Went out and to the right as I remember. Really nice and large coral formations. If conditions are good, this is a great dive. we pulled the car up almost to point of entry.
