South shore Kauai dive sites



South and southwest side dive sites are our backyard. This means we get to view the critters often and know where they have last been seen. Sailfin Leaf Scorpion fish, pregnant male pipefish, frog fish, sharks, and turtles… Great Critter diving! The southernmost tip of Kauai is Makauena Point. This dive area is from this point to Port Allen.

Lava fingers extend out on the southern most tip of Kauai creating an excellent swim-by potential. Healthy coral and beautiful sea whip fantasy area

Toilet Bowl

Deep lava ridges fall to white white sand. Great for garden eels

Brennecke’s Ledge

Old coastline now underwater with large undercuts good for critters and sharks

Sheraton Caverns

Our answer to sting ray alley in Caymans but with turtles. Cool v-shaped lava tubes

Deep Pinnacle

Offered only on the advanced 3 tank charter, here you will find great black coral, anthias, and swim-bys

Stone House

Shallow dive with nice exydoyi coral heads (kind of like an antler coral)

First Break

Stays clean often with more exydoyi coral heads

Ice Box

Has resident white tip reef sharks

Sculptured Reef

Shallow, giving you the opportunity to kick about with small ledges

Beach House Arch

Lava archway home to good shell life

Fast Lanes

Deeper lava fingers with turtles and nice schools of surgeons

Turtle Bluffs

One of my favorites! Can be dived in many ways. Old coastline of Kauai has erosional caves, overhangs, great swim-bys, large schools of snappers, sharks, and lots of turtles!

Yellow Brick Road

One of the fishiest dives on Kauai! LOTS of schools and variety

Shallow Pinnacle

As shallow as 3ft, this site took the bottom of the shipwreck the Pele who sank ½ mile later. Great fish life

Fish Bowl

Huge school of snappers and great undercuts

General Store

Resting site of the Pele shipwreck, lava tubes

River Bed

Deep and straight profile, but prolific in Life! Lots of planktavores

School House

Tumble down a ledge of boulders with large schools of goats and more. Very, very large angels dwell here

Pennant playground

“Feeling like you need some Fish Rain?” Pennants are the planktavore who swoop down on you in mass numbers. Nice coral trees too! Rather a Vertical wall

Something Fishy

Sharks, always a large school of Moorish idols
