The diversity and interesting features found at this spectacular wall make this one of the best dive sites in Hawaii. This is considered a drift dive and the entry points vary due to the direction of the currents. The wall drops vertically out of sight even though visibility can reach over 100 feet. Much of the wall is covered with sponge and orange tubastrea coral. Marine life that to be found here include, lobsters, crabs, shrimp, and many fish including the rare Long-nose hawk fish inhabit the crevices in the wall. Passing by in the blue currents larger life such as gray reef sharks and mantas can be seen. With the deep blue ocean to one side and the colorful wall to the other it is hard to decide where to direct your attention.
