This shore dive from Hale'iwa Beach Park is best accessed by swimming out from Jameson's Restaurant to the green #3 bouy on the starboard side of the channel. There is a surface layer of poor visibility (2-3 feet) that clears to about 60 feet deeper down. The site is a labyrinth of channels, with walls that run from 25 feet, to within 3 feet of the surface. They are 12 to 15 feet across, and seperated by a silt bottom, with the offshore end tapering to a width of one diver.
The site is best dived when working in towards shore. A matrix of pukas are filled with tiny lobster, and a number of tiger cowries. Though inaccessible during the day, everything comes out at night for good photography.
As such, this is an advanced dive site which should be led by a guide. Contact Ocean Concepts for information on this dive site.
