Makua Beach, Island of Oahu

image

image

image

Of all the beautiful beaches on the Waianae Coast, Makua Beach is the most spectacular. Its long crescent of white sand fronts a deep, wide valley that is undeveloped and uninhabited. One of Makuas greatest attractions is that it is the only coastal valley on Oahu without housing or other development projects. Makua means parent and the valley is identified in Hawaiian creation chants as the home of gods and demigods.

Makua beach scubadiving is one of those dives that must be explored like a one would do when moving into a new neighborhood. The depth can be from 15 - 50ft. and houses a ledge abundant in fish and invertebrates. Dolphins can be in this area, and lots of white goat fish, moorish idol schools, giant parrot fish, large yellow tang schools, and the famous Hawaiian checker cowries

Corsair Plane, depth 107 feet, Island of Oahu

The pilot of this Corsair ran out of fuel on a training mission in 1946 and ditched his plane off Hawaii Kai. He got out of the plane before it settled on the sand bottom at about 32m (105 feet). It is the only wreck in Hawaii visited by divers that was not sunk intentionally

Mokuhooniki, Molokai Island

This is the closest Molokai site to Maui, here there are pinnacles, walls, and other striking formations and healthy fish life. Since the island was used for bombing practice for many years, military debris is common here, including �reportedly-and F40 Corsair but the real attraction of Mokuhooniki are the shark. According to Mike and Pauline Severns writer and photographer, in the late summer and early fall, scalloped hammerheads gather here by the hundreds.

Lanai Lookout - Time for some extreme diving

image

image

image

The dive is midway along the wall that runs from Blowhole to Hanauma Bay. Like Blowhole, conditions can make this dive too rough. The entry can be reached by a long hike, a giant stride from a ledge about five feet above to 30 to 40 feet of water. The exit is a quarter mile toward Hanauma Bay.

The ledge drops to 90 feet or more in spots. Just past the entry is a large underwater cave that cuts deep into the cliff. Reef fish and larger visitors such as eagle rays and whitetip sharks may be spotted. Depth 30-90 feet.

The Corsair Airplane Wreck

Probably the most famous of Oahu’s wrecks. It is small but definitely worth a visit since it is remarkably intact and good airplane wrecks are rare! It has been down there since 1945 when the pilot ditched it after engine problems during an exercise.
It is a deep dive with a maximum depth of 107’/32m and with air that makes the bottom time about 15 minutes. The wreck is surrounded by hundreds of garden eels halfway out of the sand.
