Snorkeling and Scuba Diving at Turtle Street

Located a half-mile off the west end of Kaiaka Bay is a coral reef at depths of 25-30 feet. This site has a variety of overhangs and arches. On top of the shelf there is a large crack that is 60 yards wide by 100 yards long, where a school of 15 to 20 porcupine fish reside. At its center, several formations rise into the arches, tubes and caves. The residents of the formation and the topographical aberration give this site its name, Turtle Street. Six very tame turtles provide an excellent opportunity to photograph these gentle creatures, and the site is nestled with lots of pukas and is good grounds for lobster.

Lots of turtles on the shore. Visibility was terrible about 5 feet. I took my daughter and she refused to go down because she could not see the bottom. Stay on the shore and watch the turtles.
