The most challenging aspect of the site is walking over the lava rocks with your dive equipment to get to the beach. From the beach its a short walk over somewhat of a rocky and shallow bottom composition before you are able to descend to 15 feet. Initially visibility was disorienting, like diving through a thermocline or a salt/fresh water environment. This cleared shortly after reaching 15 feet and we followed the reef to the left at a depth of 35 feet. The marine life was awesome! We were diving beside a school of spinner dolphins and we saw a spotted eagle-ray that we followed down to 50 feet. And on our way back we met up with a large turtle.
