A typical dive at Wolf and Darwin is to do a back roll and kick like crazy to 70 or 80 feet where you grab onto the boulders with both hands and hold on for dear life. There is nothing agile about the diving there and you need to stay with your group or risk getting lost (forever). The currents and surge are strong. If you turn your face sideways your mask will flood if your strap is not real tight. You need kevlar gloves, normal gloves get shredded. A 7mm or dry suit is the way to go. A 5 mm is not enough warmth. I took my camera rig on one dive at Wolf and soon found out that it was difficult to hold onto a boulder with one hand and my camera with the other.
