Tech reef is an off the beaten path and is a shore dive that can be accessed close to the more well known Kahe Point Beach Park. As you are turning into the parking lot for Kahe Beach, follow the old sugar cane railroad and as it veers to the left past a number of campsites, follow it to the end. The best part of this dive is near the shore in 10 to 20 feet. Very large cauliflower coral have built up with channels in the coral and lava that provide ideal havens for small fish. Sightings of infant Turtles and Whitetips support suspicions that the area must appeal to juveniles and because of the shallow depths there is plenty of ambient light for the photographers.

No tech reef is still accessible. You just have to park in the parking lot at Kahe Beach Park and walk over the concrete barrier and down the trail to it now.

Tech Reef is no longer accessible. They have put up concrete barriers to block the road leading to the entry point. I drove around to see if I could gain access some other way but the search was fruitless. The beach entry spot is now private property.
