I did this dive July 2005 and it was a little bit advanced. Saw plenty of eels and turtles but vis wasn't too great due to the surge and swells. Had a nice drop into the water at about twelve feet. Don't do this dive without a dive guide because the currents can take you away.

Entry is best from a strip of beach accessed at the end of a driveway just after a small mom and pop shop located right after sunset beach. Make sure that this dive is done during the summer or early fall months to avoid high surf. Visibility is usually poor because of waves bringing sand off shore, however those who endeavor on this intermediate to advanced dive will find that it has lots to offer. A 65-100 yard swim over a relatively shallow reef (5-15ft.) will reveal a nice ledge that drops to between 40-50 feet. Many white saddle goat fish, regal parrot fish, sleek unicorn fish, hog fish, spotted peacock grouper can be seen on a consistent basis. The bottom is primarily sand and sparse rock so stingrays are usually seen sleeping on the bottom. At night this is one of the best spots to find spiny lobster that I have ever found (Eh! No take all my bugs, brah!) The majority of this dive reminds one of a cross between the Haleiwa Trench (see Haleiwa Beach Park) and Sharks Cove, because of the many rock overhangs and holes. Stay close to the wall and swim to the right for the best action and to keep from getting lost. The wall slopes to about 95ft. when going left. [not seen, but white tipped reef sharks suspected to sleep in the caves during the day]
