Scott, run a Google search andsee what else you can come up with. Little Flower is a very cool spot, and since it is on the east side of the island is usually available for diving. Below is some LF info.



Our morning dives were spent on the wall at Immy Lee and the afternoon was the reef at Little Flower. Bat rays galore this morning, clouds of baitfish, two giant black seabass in a cave and fun on the wall. This afternoon was highlighted by a few 5 - 8 foot soupfin sharks in the kelp forest at Little Flower and another great wall dive on the outer edge of the reef.
The wall at Little Flower starts on the outer edge of the finger reef in 25 feet and drops dramatically to the sand in 140 feet. This place is a magnet for pelagics, schooling baitfish and of course...the majestic garibaldi fish.


The next two dives were at “Little Flower”. This is named for the wreck of the “Little Flower”, and although there is very little left a nice resident Black Sea Bass makes it’s home here. This day though, it was not here.
Little Flower is a great dive. It has very good terrain in shallow water and a trench out in about 40’ that goes down to over 130’. It is neat just to sit on the edge and see what goes by.
