Heading out for a day of diving

Location: Kona Coast, Big Island, Hawaii
Depth: 90 ft
Visibility: 30-80’
Who it’s For: Intermediate to Advanced Divers

What Makes it Special:

Located within Kaloko-Honokohau National Historical Park in Kona, Honokohau dive site is a local favorite for coral reef marine life and big animal encounters. Daily dives are offered by Jack’s Diving Locker.

Honokohau features lava tubes and basaltic rock swathing the sea floor. The natural crags and crevices are peppered with hard and soft corals, and house dozens of fish species, including resident schools of raccoon butterflyfish, goatfish and Heller’s barracuda. Eels such as the dragon moray and the whitemouth moray also frequent the site.

Dive guides often lead groups to the reef’s drop off for a chance to spot eagle rays and pods of spinner dolphins. Diver might even catch a glimpse of the critically endangered, hawksbill turtle and – on a good day – a tiger shark.
