Swim straight out from entry and dive when you find "ALOHA" spelled with cinder blocks on the bottom.

Nice and easy place to dive from. You might be lucky to see the dolphins if you are there early.

I’ve sat with my back to the reef, about 90’ and listened to the whales as they pass. Turtles sunbath on the south side of the bay..... fantastic spot.
