I'm embarrassed to say that I couldn't make it through the rocks on the beach entry with all the weight from the gear and 2-3 ft waves coming in on Memorial Day. We chose instead to enter from the Right side. We had to hand the gear down and climb down about 6 foot, but the water entry was much easier with a small tidal pool, then a swim around the rock cliff to open water. It was a shallow dive (25 ft) with about 25 ft visibility. I'm looking forward to summer conditions. There were many small caves to swim through but few fish and plant life. The parking Memorial Day was very crowded. There's a FoodLand grocery store almost across the street for lunch fixins but it's expensive. We saw some divers wearing wetsuits, but in the shallow water, it was comfortably warm. As a new diver, it was good being in the water, but saw many more fish snorkeling Hanuama Bay. We did snorkel this site in very shallow water (4 ft) near the jumping off rock. It would be a nice place to bring family for splashing around.
