The boat ramp to the left offers a very easy entry. Only attempt this dive after talking to a dive shop about the local conditions. It is best to dive with a guide if you have never dived here before. There is lots of parking for the few who visit this area. Heed the warning signs about high surf.

Dove here today, 02/25/2011. This place is actually called Pohoiki. Isaac Hale park is next door. It is mostly a surfing spot. The pictures representing this spot are out-dated. The boat ramp has been totally revamped. This is a VERY popular local hang out. Please be respectful and don't trash the place. As far as the dive, well, today the surge was pretty strong. What you want to do is go out around the jetty and take about a 120 degree heading past the surf (about 100 yards), surface swim then go down. Continue until you reach edge of the wall, then go down. Watch the surge and have fun.

Haven't been scuba diving here, only free diving. Many reef fish, many sea turtles, spinner dolphins frequent beyond reef, have seen Galapagos sharks. High surf, current can get pretty strong, sometimes really bad visibility. Puna has the most beautiful coastline on the Big Island. Caution: not a safe area at night.

Nice easy dive. No facilities available. Be careful on the boat ramp. It's very slippery.
