If you like scuba diving, then among the best destinations to go to in order to indulge in your hobby is Hawaii. Irrespective of whether you’re an experienced scuba diver or are just going to begin, there are excellent dive sites around Hawaii to research. Let us take a look at a number of the best scuba diving areas in Hawaii.
Kealakekua Bay is the ideal place for both snorkelling and scuba diving. As a result of 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 kayak or have a boat ride to the local Captain James Cook memorial that’s also a wonderful place for some snorkelling. Captain Cook was of course, the guy who discovered the Hawaiian Islands back in 1778.
Another place on Hawaii Island where there’s bountiful chance for scuba diving is Honaunau Bay. The bay is protected from the hills on the southwest coast of the island and has calm, clear waters. The bay may be called’Two Steps’ because of a place on the coast 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!
In the most south-eastern tip of Squirrels in Attic you may find Hanauma Bay, one of Hawaii’s best scuba diving areas. 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 may get rough and dangerous during winter.
On the Southern coast of Lanai is located Hulope Bay that was named America’s Best Beach! It’s easy to see why when you examine the gorgeous golden sands and clam, clear water. The secluded beach is a favorite place for snorkelers and you will find fabulous tidal pools perfect for kids. There’s also excellent hiking in the event that you feel like a while from the water.
