Snorkeling and Scuba Diving at Three Tables

This site locally called Three Tables, because of the three flat rock formations just offshore are lava fingers which protrude into the ocean. The left side provides a great view of white tip reef sharks, but is a surface swim to reach the cave where they stay. On the right is a popular site with a huge cave/swim through locally known as Cathedrals. A seasonal long shore current may be present during the high winter surf period (Oct-May) and diving is not recommended with occasional exceptions on calm days. Entry and exits are easy to make, occasionally some dive shops will conduct OW classes at this site. The best diving is when the swells are 0-3 foot. This is an excellent site or interesting topography with several caves and swim throughs making for a fun dive for all levels of certification. The area is also a marine preserve so there is no fishing or hunting on the reef. Turtles can also be seen throughout the area, occasionally rays, and various inshore fish species. Dive flags are required, but not well enforced. Some dive/fishing boats also share the water. Waimea bay. Shore diving the entire reef is possible if you don't mind a surface swim of about 50-100m (300ft). Parking is free but limited so an early arrival is recommended. Three Tables is also known as Kalahopele Gulch.
