The trench was pretty cool…we walked out from the leeward side of the surf center (big brown building). Make sure you wear some good protective boots when you're diving there, since there's a lot of sea urchins in that reef. Unless you swim out from the breaker to the windward side of the surf center, you'll have to walk over about 75 yards of reef. I stepped on something that kinda jabbed through my soft sole booties, and it wasn't pretty…but that didn't stop me from doing the dive. I didn't even tell my buddies because I didn't want to not dive. The pain didn't last, though. I got distracted by the dive. Once you get to that wall it drops about 70 feet or so...not too many fish, maybe at the second reef. Has anyone been to that reef? Is there a lot of reef life out there?
