This is a good dive. The divers that passed away entered near the mouth of the river. I would not enter the river any closer to the Niagara than Tims Hortons. The river flows away from the Niagara river!!! This is a very fun dive but I would recommend doing it with somebody who has done the dive before. Boat traffic can be heavy so be careful.....
Koloa Landing on 7/19/2010
Dove here 4 times (2 x 2-tank) during our week (3-9 July 2010) on Kauai and had a blast! For ease of entry/exit, variety of sea life and long bottom time, this is a great place to dive. I'm a relative novice diver with dives #17-#21 in my log book done here. Dove late morning on the first day and late afternoon on the second day. Too many fish to count and visibility varied between 20'-45'. Just cruising along and taking photos of the variety of life there made this THE best shore dive site I've experienced. Saw Honu, trumpet fish, eels and so many reef fish I lost count.
Tunnels Beach on 7/19/2010
Dove this site with a guide and was glad I did. It would be very easy to make a navigation mistake here and I would've been comfortable doing the swim throughs without a professional. Did see 5'-6' white tip shark with 4-6 cleaner fish taking care of him. Saw a shrimp and some reef fish, but not as plentiful as at Koloa Landing. Very easy entry/exit and the water was calm, so not much surf/surge to speak of.
