With the number of divers here, I'm surprised there aren't more reviews, so here's mine (for what it's worth). Electric beach is possibly the most popular shore dive during the winter here. Entry/exit can be challenging, but once past the short break, it's easy going. Plenty to see here- the warm water from the pipe attracts lots of fish, some turtles, and the occasional Eagle Ray and further out, some dolphins. I've seen and used this site for training for OW up to rescue divers. If you're good on air, head NNW to a site I've heard called Sharks Cave. No actual caves, but some nice formations and some white-tips. It's right in front of 'Tracks' beach (the next beach up the road) - you may see some snorkeling boats there.

Went out on the last day of our Divemaster class. The lifeguard said conditions were too bad for a dive, but we went anyway. Surf was 5-6 feet over the reef (right side of the area), but calm in the middle. Fairly easy, but long swim to the site, descended at the edge of the reef and swam out to avoid the surf. Visibility wasn't great 15-25'. Not much to see until you get to the caverns. Used the broken statue as a waypoint - 270 degrees from the statue over the reef will take you right to some caverns. They were pretty spectacular - long swim throughs, interesting formations - one of my buddies says there are usually reef sharks hanging out in one of the caverns, but none seen today. Didn't see any turtles either, but overall, a very nice dive that I will bring other divers to.
