Great site to dive or snorkel. Lots of people snorkeling but hardly any diving. A huge pod of spinner dolphins hung around for over an hour. Tons of turtles, tangs, eels, and other fish everywhere. Garden eels towards the mouth of the cove. Access is IMMENSELY easier to the far left at the boat ramp.

A great dive! I saw tons of fish with wonderful visibility. I also saw one of the resident reef sharks lying between two coral heads. There are supposedly two of them. The one I saw was about 7'+ and fairly unimpressed with me. There should be no fear of them, because an old local woman I met has been swimming with them every morning for 20 years. Neat place to scuba and meet with the locals.
