I live down at South Point and know all the folks that shuttle. Not really "redneck". Just local guys earning a living and getting tourists in and out safely with a little aloha along the way. I located the guy who drown there a few months back for search and rescue. He was not diving. It is a dangerous beach and not much to see without a dpv. Mostly sand until you get out past bay where currents pick up quick. Also its unlikely youll get a guide to take your gear out due to space and safety.Yeah, Green Sand is beautiful and well worth the trip. You don't have to hike—local rednecks will drive you out in their 4X4s for a fee. Even so, probably not worth trying to dive there—conditions are often rough and it's a steep climb down to to the beach after you're dropped off. I believe a diver was lost there a couple of months ago.
Great report and pics op. Glad you enjoyed yourself and maximized that bottom time. Solid!
