This dive site is located in Maunalua Bay and is one of the best sites to see turtles. You can expect to see several large turtles on a single dive. They often rest on the bottom or on the lava ledges that extend over the sand. The turtles are used to divers and photographers can get close and take all the pictures they way. The lava ridges contain numerous pukas, overhangs, and ledges that also host a variety of critters and are worth exploring with a dive light.

A great dive lots of huge turtles resting and getting cleaned by all the little fish. We coaxed a little octopus out of his hole. He was pretty friendly he didn't squirt any ink at us. Great visibility! We got lots of great pics!

Im not sure the other reviewer was in the right spot? Living here I dove this spot several times and love it! Crystal clear water, bunches of fish and turtles everywhere! I never dove this site and seen less than 5 turtles. Last dive there I was working on some skills with a dive master and I had a turtle parked 4 feet away watching us! The only draw back of this dive site is its very popular. Youll be surrounded by envious snorkelers!

This site is lousy. Only sand-almost devoid of coral and few fish.
