Great shore dive in the Summer months when the North and West shores are relatively calm. One of my favorite shore dives on Maui. Good for snorkeling and novice divers as well. Max depth was 40 feet. Viz was 50-60 feet. Honolua Bay is a marine preserve so the fish life is very good. There are reefs to the right (North side) and left (South side) of the bay although the right side is generally the best. Parking is very limited on the main road. I asked the locals who live on the land if I could drive down and park since I had scuba gear (for a small donation in their donation box). They agreed and it was worth $20 not to have to hump all the dive gear 400 yards down the trail. Great dive if you are here in the Summer months.
