Evaluation

*Average:    3.56
This was our first dive in Kauai. It was suggested to us from the dive shop right down the road. At first I thought I was at home diving in Rockport, MA, big boulders and poor vis. We Dove to the left of the boat ramp. At first I was disappointed, but then I started to dig into the crevasses. We saw two species of nudibrancs without trying, octopus, plenty of Moray eels. After talking to someone who has lived here a while, I understand the coral is much worse than it was ten years ago. If you are up for a swim, I hear there's a healthier reef out about 250 yards that starts at 45' and drops from there. Ask the local shop about it before you commit to that swim. I wasn't disappointed but after diving the Big Island, there's no comparison.
