My first shore dive in HI, and it was excellent. No turtles, but we saw an eel, a small ray, many fish, and a nudibranch. The coral was in good shape. Other posts are correct about the ease of entry and exit. We went all the way around to the boat ramp, but should have just clambered out onto the rocks as it gets really shallow getting into the ramp's little sub-bay. Max depth was about 22m, but it would be possible though not desirable to go deeper. This was my first dive outside of Aus/Indo, so I was disappointed to not see any soft coral and fewer other creatures, but I'm told HI is not about corals, so we'll see.
