07/09/2004        3.53      Makua Oahu, Hawaiian Islands
Makua has also been called Twin Pinnacles or Amphitheatre by local divers, back before someone spray painted Pray for Sex on a rock near the beach. Make sure you have good booties as there are lots of urchin on the shelf. If you giant stride off the lava rock shelf, swim straight out 270 degrees and you'll see what's left of what we used to call Twin Pinnacles. Heavy winter surf has taken its toll. You can tie off a flag there. Descend and head 270 again and you'll enter 2 consecutive collapsed lava tubes. The farther is referred to as the Amphitheatre. I've often seen Hawaiian turkey fish at this location. The nearest park facilities are at Yokohama Beach farther down Farrington Hwy.
07/09/2004        3.63      Kahe Point Beach Park Oahu, Hawaiian Islands
The cave mentioned above is a collapsed lava tube. You can reach it by navigating 300 degrees from the old pier pylon that everyone ties their flag to. The cave is just a small part of a very nice reef with lots of structure. Turtles and occasionally white tip reef sharks can be found here. I've also encountered spinner dolphin on the surface in this area during the spring. You can reach this from the next beach down; Farrington also, but it's about the same swim either way.
