What a great spot on the Big Island. Thank you ShoreDiving.com for your reviews and coordinates. Took my Nav with me and finding these gems (dive spots) was a breeze. This was a fresh dive for me this vacation. Viz was excellent, surface temp 81, bottom temp. 79. One word of caution: Current can sneak up on you, especially at 70-100 ft. Had a bit of a scare myself as I tried to negotiate my way back. Breathing got heavy and felt a bit of panic as my reg only delivered so much. Controlled the situation and all was ok in the end. A definite 'must dive again spot'. Note: our entry was to the north of the open beach, between the two rocks, visible in the pic. Have not tried the south entry.
