We rented a house across the street for xmas 09, dove this site 3 times with my 19 year old son. Didn't go out some days as the surf was quite high. I had my hard boots with me (Canadian dry suit diver!) and was glad I did, made the entry a piece of cake. There are some small mooring eyes on the edge of the drop off, I tied my smb to one and it made it easy to spot the exit point. Watch for boats as the Puako harbor is close. We saw whales from the shore more than once. Great dive site!
