Snorkeling and Scuba Diving at Back Side

Nice site to dive. You must have a boat to reach the area. Snorkelers and other dive companies usually frequent the inside of the crater, but not so busy on the back. The back wall drops beyond 200'-300' and the visibility is usually good. There were several reef sharks and a few whales on my trip. If you travel in the winter months (Oct-Mar) you will most likely run across humpback whales. This can be a drift dives at times, but the current was almost undetectable when I went. South side of Molokini Island Back Side is also known as Back Wall.
