Local dive shops like to boast that the place has been rated one of the very best shore dives. Sure, it is a very beautiful dive, but a rating depends on what you compare it to and on the criteria used. So to be a bit more specific: the lava tube landscape is really great, extensive, unique and make a wonderful lighting, fish are abundant for Hawaii maybe (not big ones), but not compared to other reef areas such as the Maldives or Red Sea (counting shore dives only). Since the coral is crushed by the winter surf, very little here, compact shapes only, no soft coral. So from the biological perspective I would certainly not vote it among the best.
