Snorkeling and Scuba Diving at Kahala Barge

This dive site features the wreck of a barge that was sunk for use as an artificial reef in roughly 90 feet of water, 250 yards off the Kahala Hilton. The wreck, a 200 foot Matson Barge, lies upright and intact with a pilothouse one can penetrate, this makes for amazing photos. Visibility is great due to the currents cleaning the water, but one should take care not to get swept up in them. Overall, one should have some underwater experience before attempting this dive.

I would have to say that this is an extreme shore dive. If you shore dive from the Kahala hotel or beach, it's a good .75 miles or more out. With currents and wind at a nearly constant full force here, this would be a tough dive to do from shore. As far as the wrecks there, five are scattered about and if you start from the most east wreck you can drift down and see all of them. However since this area is raped nightly by commercial fisherman there is hardly any life.
