8/14/2015 Did a fantastic dive here. TONS of life. Large game fish. Silky sharks! Loved the dive - everywhere you looked there was life buzzing around the rig. The current on the day we dove was very light. Excellent location. We dove it from the MV Fling.

Heavy current on the day we were there which kind of took away from the enjoyment because we had to fight with the current.
