I dove this site repeatedly in May of 2010, and virtually every other access point along the Puako road, there are many! All my dives were done early in the morning, just after sunrise. As other divers have reported, the water is very shallow close in and the wind can come up quickly, making for a painful exit complete with reef rash. However the conditions were always super under the water with lots of cool structure, swim throughs, caves and tubes. The sea life was also abundant with tons of turtles, too many fish to count including frog fish, garden eels and even a turtle cleaning station. I think it was worth the effort and abrasions. If you are interested in underwater pics or video from this dive site, email me at clint_crowe at hotmail and I'd be happy to share.
