Actually, your post is a bit confusing, but I'll try to answer as best I can.
There are caves, mostly small, on Santa Cruz Island, but they are not recommended
for the beginner diver and very few people hunt bug in them. They are rather hard
to get to and mostly accessable only by private boat.
I think your best bet is to learn to hunt bug like everyone else. Santa Cruz Island
is a good place to start. Just swim around and cover a lot of area. You will see
bugs and then you have to grab them as quick as you can.
You might want to try night diving, when the bugs may be out of their holes. It can
make it easier.
Really, cave diving is a bit hazardous at times and you might want to take some
advanced classes, including a cave specialty, to learn more about it. If you don't
know, a class is the place to start. There's lots of DIR people that will be
thrilled to help you out some.
Ummm. One thing that confuses me a bit. If you can make 2 1/2 hours on a single 72,
that may be a new worlds record... or maybe just a typo.
You might want to look at www.diver.net/seahunt. There are extensive discussions of
bug hunting under various conditions.
Enjoy the diving, sehaunt
