Great dive, with heavy surf, difficult entry, deep dive, cold, surge, kelp, long surface swim. Great flora and fauna, dove with dive master and another advanced dive buddy. Can be treacherous, so for the experienced deep divers, used to adverse conditions, only. I had a near death experience from out of air due to complications on surfacing and exit. Keep an eye on the monastery on entrance and exit, you may need the faith. I recommend carrying pony tank for extra air as strenuous dive consumes air faster than expected. BE NOT AFRAID. I would dive there again for the challenge.
