I took my son for his first real dive. He handled the entry very nicely. We spent a lot of time in the lava as he wanted to look in every nook a cranny. We saw the garden eels, one of which was hunting. We discovered two swim-throughs which he enjoyed. This is a great site to get your fins wet. I also HIGHLY recommend Manta Ray Bay. We swam with a school of dolphins.

I took my newly certified son here for his 4th dive. The reef is great! We got a map of the site from Jack's Diving Locker. We found all the key sites including the Aloha made of cinder blocks. LOTS of turtles. We were told you can often see sleeping dolphins but had no luck finding them. Lots of fish and Great visibility. Entry is a cake. Good place to bring your snorkeling buddies if you want to dive.
