We chose this for our first shore dive in Kauai. We did plan ahead evaluating the available sites across the island and, with larger surf in the south, we decided on Tunnels. With all the research it was busy and parking was nonexistent so we did a drop and hump the gear. It was easy to spot the breaks in the reef allowing the entry to deeper water without problems. A significant current was visible so we exercised even more caution. Dive went great. Lots of fish, shrimp, and a beautiful White Tip being cleaned. Lots of snorkelers enjoying the spot too. On our exit, current increased forcing us to swim some but no big deal. Enjoyed it and sure you will too, just plan ahead like your supposed to.
