Just a quick update as it has not been evaluated in the past few years. Really nothing has changed. Saw 2 turtles, one on our way out and one coming in. Also saw a very active eel just outside cove, which surprised me as it was 10am. The lava tube was a highlight and reason enough to make this dive. I will do this one again when we return.

Like many have said, this is a must do dive. Great vis and lots of fish and turtles. It is best to get there early just so you can park fairly close. Otherwise it is a fairly long walk down the road, not a deal breaker by any means, but the earlier you get there the better. It was a very smooth entry in, but on exit the surf had picked up quite a bit and people were getting slammed into the rock steps. I stayed back a bit until it died down, not more than a few minutes and got out without trouble. We will do this dive again. It was one of the best we have done.
