Had a great dive here. It really is one of the best dives on the island. Everyone says you are guaranteed to see turtles here. Unfortunately we didn't see any on our dive but a snorkeler said he saw one. We saw some crown of thorn starfish, an octopus, and all manner of reef fish. The coral formations were beautiful. Entry was a little tricky off of the steps but not bad at all. We did two tanks. To the left side of the bay there are lava rock fingers shooting off from the shore to explore. On the right side it is a fairly steep drop-off of coral. It was well worth the drive down from Kona to this spot which took about 45 min.
