Snorkeling and Scuba Diving at Kapalua Bay

As you stay to the right on the dive, you will actually exit the Bay and start to make your way into Namalu Bay (the next bay over. Very interesting coral, lava formations, and marine life can be seen. This is an excellent night dive as well. Kapalua Bay never gets old for diving. It is also a very safe dive (other than the occasional current). Kapalua Bay is accessed by taking Lower Honoapiilani Road into Kapalua Resort. Located between Napili Kai Beach Resort and Merriman's Restaurant is public beach parking for the Bay. This includes showers and restrooms. Park in the lot or along the road (by all of the other cars). The beach is about 100 ft walk from the restrooms. While the entire Bay is worth diving, the best is on the far side (located furthest away from the parking, near the Ritz Carlton Kapalua Bay Residences). Surface swim out across the Bay until you are near the rocks on the far side and are out just past the restaurant (in terms of distance from the shore). Drop down and stay to the right. This is a great dive, especially at night.
