Did our checkout dives here before going to Lanai Cathedrals, etc. 21ft with depth gauge in the sand. Good sand channels to do basic skills. Understand this is a common area for OW dive training. Some fish and adequate reef. Would be a safe night dive. Had a south to north current flow the day we dove. Easy dive into current with drift back to beginning by end of dive. Look for a sand chute all the way up to the beach to exit the water from. Can get tossed onto the reef if not paying attention upon exit. Overall a good place for a checkout dive if you are staying north of Lahaina.

Don't try to rent tanks at the Sheraton Kiosk after 3pm. They would not rent a tank at 3:30pm though they were open to 5pm. The staff that day at the kiosk did not appear to be very SCUBA knowledgeable. Great snorkel spot for turtles out around the bend of the reef. Turtles stay down low until they need air and surface right by you. A little north to south current in this area also. Lessened around the southern turn toward the shore. Watch out for cliff jumpers and divers.
