Rainbow Reef and Magic Island

Depth : 20 - 60ft
Access : Shore
Location : South Shore
Visibility : 20 - 60ft
Level : Beginner
Sealife : Spotted Puffer fish, morays, Moorish idols, turtles, colorful invertebrates

Both of these dive spots are located near Ala Moana Beach Park, which offers easy and convenient shore entry. There is an abundance of marine life and due to the lack of currents this is a perfect spot for beginners. The fish here have been hand feed for years so prepare to be approached by all sorts of colorful tropicals. Expect to see porcupine fish, spotted puffer fish, morays, Moorish idols, triggerfish, and fantail filefish. You might also see the odd manta ray and turtle or two. * Due to possible boat traffic this site is not recommended for snorkelers.

Outstanding shore dive. Easy snorkel out past the breakers, went SCUBA, dropped down and met a Honu. Vis was about 25' (tide was changing), and enjoyed the reef with full assortment of tropicals. Gonna do it again.
