Kauai’s waters offer a diversity of reef topography in combination with a rich assortment of marine life that makes for truly remarkable diving.
Dive sites like Koloa Landing, Sheraton Caverns, Zach’s Pocket, Fast Lanes, General Store and more in Sunny Poipu are nurseries for many colorful fish including triggerfish, surgeonfish, parrotfish, butterflyfish, frogfish, scorpionfish, & moray eels. Majestic lava tubes, rocky outcroppings, and large coral structures create the perfect habitat for fish to prosper.
In Kauai, we are also very lucky to encounter the endangered Hawaiian green sea turtle on nearly every dive! The Hawaiian Green Sea Turtles can reach 300+ pounds and are prolific on Kauai. Their main food source, which is algae, grows in abundance here because Kauai is one of the wettest spots on earth.
Rivers flowing into the sea from our mountain ranges disperse nutrients that feed algae and make it thrive. Because of this, the sea turtles stay close to shore and allow for awesome viewing encounters.
