Evaluation

*Average:    3.95
One of best dive in Maui. You'll see many turtles near the surface. Also there's 3 caves on the left peninsula, you can spot it easily. The first one is quite large and easy to access. I would say that the next 2 are a bit smaller to enter but go longer. For the last one at the end of the peninsula, where the charter boats attach to the buoy, you can penetrate about 150 feet inside, so please respect the rules of cave diving. In any of the caves you'll probably see some white tip sharks and big turtles. Try not to block the way out since they'll probably try to escape when they see the lights. I'm not sure about the other two caves, but I found a big cavern on the other side of the left peninsula that you can also access from Makena Landing. A must do dive if you are in Maui.
