This was the site of my very first, uncertified dive, having done nothing but played around in a pool for a few hours the weekend before we left for The Big Aloha. Because the dive master felt I was a strong swimmer and comfortable in the water, we did the whole thing - 65' depth, swim-throughs, etc. The first time I did it was off a boat, but we returned a few days later and did it as a shore dive. This is a very beautiful dive, and was a lucky first. The life is plentiful, the visibility good to great, you get sharks in the swim-throughs in the mornings and turtles in the afternoon. LOTS of turtles! I've been to Cozumel and Palau since this first trip, and this dive comes close. Lots of fun, although be prepared for a long swim out. Best dived on a flat day because of the swim. Fortunately it's pretty calm in the winter on the South Shore, when the North Shore is basically undivable.
