A World of Diving Opportunities
Kauai’s waters offer a breathtaking diversity of reef topography and an abundant assortment of marine life, setting the stage for truly remarkable dives. Dive sites like Koloa Landing, Sheraton Caverns, Zach’s Pocket, Fast Lanes, General Store, and more in Sunny Poipu act as nurseries for a vibrant array of colorful fish, including triggerfish, surgeonfish, parrotfish, butterflyfish, frogfish, scorpionfish, and moray eels. Majestic lava tubes, rocky outcroppings, and expansive coral structures create the perfect habitat for these marine wonders to thrive.
Meet the Hawaiian Green Sea Turtle
One of the most magical aspects of diving in Kauai is encountering the endangered Hawaiian green sea turtle on nearly every dive. These magnificent creatures can reach over 300 pounds and are abundant in Kauai’s waters. The key to their thriving population is the lush algae, their main food source, which flourishes here thanks to Kauai’s status as one of the wettest spots on earth. Nutrient-rich rivers flowing from our mountain ranges into the sea nourish this algae, keeping the sea turtles close to shore and providing you with awe-inspiring viewing encounters.

The ocean (Moana) is at the heart pulse of what we do. Without the vast eco systems and diverse species on our reefs there would be no underwater world for us to educate, explore and enjoy. “The oceans deserve our respect and care, but you have to know something before you can care about it” – Sylvia Earle.
