I did this dive in Oct. 2011 and just never got around to reviewing it. It's a great site and has a more unusual coral type than most other sites I have seen on the Big Island. I don't have any notes on details, but I'm guessing it's some sort of 'Sheet or Scroll' species of coral and I remember diving along a sloping wall of it for quite a distance at about 20 meters depth to the north of the entry point. The day we were there, the surfers were having some real fun which spells 'challenge' for shore divers on entry and exit. I guess what brought me back to review this site was the fact that it lies on the southern part of Kealakuaekua Bay where the Captain Cook Monument is. I know for a fact that humpback whales hang out near the Captain Cook Monument in January. Good luck and enjoy!
