I did five tanks at this site over the last 12 days and even with some rain and the runoff from it the visibility was very good to good. Four tanks were used during the noon to four o'clock time frame. All these dives had many sightings of various eels with one dive having between 25 to 30 different ones of many varieties - Zebra, Dragon - white mouth - spotted and a couple I don't know the name of yet. Over the last ten years I've done a lot of shore diving at this location and I always seem to find at least one really interesting critter to watch while diving here - my favorite over the years was a pair of harlequin shrimp pulling a star fish to their den. The fifth tank was from 7pm to about 8:15pm with very little moon. The highlight of the night dive was the great variety of shrimp I kept finding and two Dragon eels one of which was very large for its species. Also if Turtles are your thing I can't remember a dive here where I didn't encounter at least one. To see what I have seen over the years at this location you can go to webshots and look at the different Kauai albums of diverearl.
