If you like scuba diving, then among the best destinations to visit in order to indulge in your hobby is Hawaii. Regardless of whether you’re an experienced scuba diver or are just going to get started, there are excellent dive sites around Hawaii to explore. Let us take a look at a number of the best scuba diving spots in Hawaii.
Kealakekua Bay is a perfect spot for both snorkelling and scuba diving. Thanks to the fact that the bay is guarded by cliffs, the water is very calm and the bay is home to a myriad of marine life. Additionally it is possible to either kayak or have a boat ride to the nearby Captain James Cook memorial that’s also a wonderful place for some snorkelling. Captain Cook was of course, the man who discovered the Hawaiian Islands back in 1778.
Honaunau Bay (Hawaii Island)
Another spot on Hawaii Island where there is bountiful chance for scuba diving is Honaunau Bay. Again, the bay is shielded by the mountains on the southwest coast of the island and has calm, clear waters. The bay may be known as’Two Steps’ because of a spot on the shore where the lava stone has worn away to form a two step point of entrance into the water! It is like it was made for scuba divers! There are hundreds of species of fish and you may even spot the Hawaiian Green Sea Turtle!
At the most south-eastern tip of Oahu you may find Hanauma Bay, one of Hawaii’s best scuba diving spots. It’s in fact a Marine Life Conservation District so entrance to the bay is strictly controlled to keep the delicate ecosystem in the bay. However, it’s family friendly and has some magnificent reefs and friendly fish in every color of the rainbow.
Kee Beach is at the Northern end of Kauai and featured a protected lagoon that’s simply perfect for snorkeling. However, this needs to be limited to the summer months as the water can become rough and dangerous during winter.
Hulopoe Bay (wildlife removal services)
On the Southern coast of Lanai is located Hulope Bay that was once named America’s Best Beach! It’s easy to see why when you look at the gorgeous golden sands and clam, clear water. The secluded beach is a favorite place for snorkelers and there are fabulous tidal pools perfect for kids. There is also excellent hiking if you feel like a while out of the water.
