What a spectacular dive site. Today we joined the already anchored Body Glove boat and Big Island Divers. We entered thru the beach, anchored our float and proceeded to go south past the boats and then west to about 90 feet. 2 white mouth morays greeted us on the way to the sandy flats. We joined the concert of garden eels and then we were surprised by 3 majestic eagle rays cruising just off the bottom. We decided to do this dive after we scrapped the north entry at the old airport due to excessive surf and what appeared as heavy washout current. Conditions at Alua beach were pristine. What a difference just few miles north makes on a dive. Aloha
