"Salt Pond "

Reviewed Mar. 15, 2018

Entry and exit of this shore dive would be beginner - intermediate depending on the visibility. The entry and exit is quite shallow, combined with the waves made the visibility poor (about 5 ft.) You want to follow the rocks ledge out and go to the left. After you pass the ledge there is a lot of different coral to swim over. Visibility throughout the dive was around 20 ft. Average depth was 14 ft, max depth was 20 ft. Water temperature was 73 F. I saw a few turtles, lots of Hawaiian Cleaner Wrasse, Morrish Idol and schools of French Grunt's. ... Show More

"Easy Navigation Dive"

Reviewed Mar. 12, 2018

Dove this site, not very deep, 25 feet or so. Water temp was 74F Visibility was OK, 30 feet. Visibility got better deeper. Lots of fish, and coral heads. Out deeper saw lots of turtles. You can gear up in a small pond with sand bottom, only nav issue is the first 30 yards, and for this you just have to follow a channel right and then left, straight out to a small exposed lava rock, pay attention because you have to do this on the way in. Go right straight or left, lots of options, your tank will last because its not very deep.... Show More

"Shallow shore dive"

Reviewed Mar. 11, 2018

Park near the end of Lokokai Rd so you won’t need to haul your gear to far down to the beach. Once in the water, stay to the far-left side of the ‘pond’ until you turn the corner around the lava rock. I would recommend you snorkel the entry of this site to familiarize yourself with the best path to get out into the ocean. Be mindful of any current and plan your dive accordingly. This is really a nice site with lots of beautiful coral heads to explore.... Show More
