Diving the Kahuka Ledge

By Ocean Concepts

Depth: 70 feet

Bottom Time: 25 Minutes

Visibility: 50-100 feet

Sealife: Yellowfish tuna, Openwater Jack, Lobster, Tiger Cowries, Tritons Trumpet Snail

The northernmost top of O'ahu marks a relatively inaccessible site that can only be dived when the conditions are perfect, which is rare. Depending upon the speed of the boat, transit times from Hale'iwa Harbor can range up to 2 hours to the site, three quarters of a mile offshore. Again, because of its inaccessibility, the area in unspoiled. Kahuku Ledge runs parallel to shore at 70 feet, then plummets in a sheer drop to over 160 feet. Yellowfin Tuna, openwater jacks and the other resident fish abound here.
