his bay was declared a protected marine life conservation area and underwater park in 1967. This is the very best beach area if you are new to Scuba diving or you want go Snorkeling .

Thu May 25, 5:02 PM ET KAHALUU, Hawaii - Three dozen dead hammerhead sharks were found yesterday washed up on the shore of Kaneohe Bay.
Marine Mammal Response Coordinator David Schofield says the sharks appeared to be juvenile hammerheads.
He says he took a couple of the dead sharks as samples and will turn them over to shark experts today.
Eighteen-year-old Terrance Ghoston found the sharks when his dog brought one of them to shore and tried to eat it.
He later stumbled upon the rest of the sharks, which were grouped in a 30 to 40-yard area behind his home.

Although my point and shoot digital camera was ruined by a flood while diving the Lorrance (maybe 200 feet was pushing it for a housing rated to 130), the picture card remained intact and I was able to pull these photos from the card. Some are blurry (low light and movement) and would have been helped by an external strobe, but I was wary of too much task loading during deep training dives.
Photos are from a dive onto the Miller Lite (max depth 158 feet, total runtime 68 minutes)
