Serene. Ethereal. Weightless. Free. These are just some of the many words used by people to describe the feeling of scuba diving. And to feel that while diving off the shores of an amazing island like Kaua‘i… well, that just might be an experience beyond description. Come immerse yourself in the azure Pacific and scuba dive Kaua‘i’s spectacular reefs teeming with fish and sea life. If you’re lucky, you may just get to dive with some spinner dolphins!
Kaua‘i’s Scuba Hot Spots
The most stellar spots for scuba diving in Kaua’i are accessible only by boat, and range in depth from 30 to 160 feet. Some of the best Kaua‘i scuba diving bar none is off the south shore, where the average reef depth is 47 feet and the visibility is often good. “General Store” at 35 feet in depth is killer. Other awesome south side spots include Fishbowl (80 ft.), Turtle Bluffs (50 ft.), Sheraton Caves (30 ft.), and Brennecke’s Ledge (50 ft.). On the north side just past Hanalei near Ha‘ena Beach Park you’ll find Tunnels Reef and Beach. About 60 yards offshore is a fantastic horseshoe shaped reef at a depth of 65 feet. If you go to the east side, you’ll find a great shore dive at Luckenbach (60 ft.).
