This dive site is located near the Sheraton Hotel on Ka'anapali Beach and has a very easy entry/exit point via a sandy shallow beach. The lava rock formation supports a wide variety of fish that frequent the area due to snorkelers feeding them all day long. There are a lot of turtles, moray eels and even the occasionally Eagle Ray has been seen passing by. This rock extends about 50 feet above the ocean and drops to depths of 35 feet. Occasionally a large turtle may be found sleeping in the cave by the back wall. This is an excellent night dive for all levels of divers and it is possible to see Spanish Dancers, cowries and lobster. This is one of the most popular shore dives on West Maui and should not be missed.

I've been there on an expedition organized by Dipndive.com shop and it's owners, Laura and Joe, and had a most wonderful snorkeling experience. Also, been to Lahanana old town. I'm addicted to those place...looking forward to get back.
