This is a great dive site, much more to see under than above ;-) Summer months bring snorkeling tours out to site. Be careful of boats and bring a dive flag! Watch for turtles catch the updraft from the pipe. They look like they are really flying. DO NOT GO IN THE EXIT SURGE FROM THE PIPE YOURSELF! Its like a washing machine.
There are a couple rather small swim thrus to the east of the pipe, but watch for fish line that has snagged on the coral and been left to pollute the water. Excellent Night Dive or Daytime.
Lite wet suit or rash guards need along with booties for shore entry and exit.
WARNING: Watch out for the water coming out of the electric pipes. It can be strong!
WARNING: Watch out for all the homeless. Leave all valueables at home. Dong Jacob or Aunty Momi w/ a valuemeal to watch your car. Take booties w/ all the thornbushes over the entry point.

First Ocean - This was my first ocean dive ever, after over 200 dives with students as a divemaster, was same year as 911 in December, not on a houli side of the island. Went in early morning, came out, walking through the picnic pavillion, and there were local all set up making puca shell jewelery, felt like I was walking through there home, we had no problems with the car nor the locals. maybe cuz we excused ourselves and it was mutual respect

B.S. - Guys, this place is no different than any other site you may have been to as far as your car getting broken into. If you look like a tourist and leave stuff all over your car seats in plain site; of course someone will break into your car. I have been stationed on the island for 5 years and have never had my car broken into at any dive spot. There are stupid people always leaving their purse on the seat and wondering why their car gets broken into. Don't leave things out in the open (even if you think they have little or no value). Be smarter than the typical tourist.

DO NOT leave your car alone! - Concur with the other two comments above about crime -- the locals broke into our car within 15 minutes, and there was nothing the police could do. Another site has suggested that if you pay one of them $10, they'll "watch your car" for you.
