Scott G's Dive Log
Sheraton Caverns on 10/4/2007
Oct 4, 2007, 12:00 AM
My wife and I just dove this site from shore, and it was great! We parked in the public lot just west of the Sheraton. Surf was up a little, and the entry/exit was rocky but very doable, just walk slowly. We entered just west of the parking lot (205 heading to the caverns), and exited just east (180 heading to the caverns). Pick your entry/exit points based on the surf. The swim out was much shorter than I expected, only a 15 minute swim out. We swam back underwater and only used 500PSI coming back. The dive was fantastic, great vis, lots of schooling fish and turtles. It's easy to find the caverns if dive boats are out there, they will be directly under the eastern dive boat (if there are more than 1 dive boat). The caverns go from 45ft down to 64ft. The reef goes all the way out from the shore to the caverns.
Koloa Landing on 10/5/2007
Dove 2 shore dives at Koloa landing: a night dive to the left (Spanish dancer, flying gurnard, bearded cusk eel, bandfin cardinalfish), and a day dive to the right (turtles, dragon moray). I'd like to explore more to the left going out deeper sometime, past 50ft. Overall a good shore dive, with a very easy entry.
Tunnels Beach on 10/5/2007
We did 2 dives at tunnels. The best entry is at the 1st dirt road. Follow the narrow sand channel straight out the beach, then make a left to dive the inner reef. You will soon find the "tunnels". They are quite cool. We found a few turtles and a white-tipped shark. Beware of currents in the sandy area outside of the inner reef.
