Best to dive when flat. Entry can be rough if there is surf and low tide. Lava arches to the left, deep dive with garden eels if you go straight out.

Dived here several hundred times, never get bored. Lots of reef fish, you usually can spot an Eagle Ray or turtle. Nice gentle drop-off for a deep dive. Good divers can make it out and back to a turtle cleaning station. The only workout is the hike in and out over the lava rock.

From the pier, I suggest snorkeling out a ways. The farther you go the better it gets. Lots of lava tubes, good chance to see a shark. I've found many lobsters even during the day. It's real dark in the area at night, suggest a shore marker strobe.

Having done at least 500 dives at this site in the past 20 years, I have to say it's getting better with age. Manta's, Eagle Rays, Octopus, lots of Green Sea Turtles. Night dives with White Tips guarding the opening of the lava tube, what a thrill! Take a u/w scooter and see a beautiful reef at 80 ft. It's loaded with fish.
