Did not dive here the first day because the surf was up 2-4 feet. The entry is rocky and would be dangerous with that level of surf. The local recommendations we heard said not to try with surf greater than 1-2 feet. The phone number for a local surf report is 596-SURF. Day two the surf was 1-2 feet and the entry required caution but was not difficult. The lava formations were impressive. Saw a respectable number of fish and 1 turtle. Overall this was a great dive. Under the right conditions the entry is reasonable. The swim required was short with a great payoff. Max depth was 35 feet so bottom time was long. Vis was pretty good even though the surf had been up the day before. I will be going back!
