The toughest part of the dive is the entry at 5 Graves. It's a rocky entry that will present a challenge if the surf is high. There are lots of caves and arches to swim through, you could do this dive 10 times and not see it all. Be sure to take a flashlight to search the pukas for crabs, lobsters and other invertebrates inside the lava formations. Other marine life in this area includes turtles, frogfish, conger eels and white-tip reef sharks. Occasional spotted eagle rays and manta rays cruise over the rocky bottom in 40 to 50 feet near the outer boat moorings. Visibility varies radically depending on conditions, so if the surf is big, don't even try to dive here and always use caution if you enter the caves.
