Did our checkout dives here before going to Lanai Cathedrals, etc. 21ft with depth gauge in the sand. Good sand channels to do basic skills. Understand this is a common area for OW dive training. Some fish and adequate reef. Would be a safe night dive. Had a south to north current flow the day we dove. Easy dive into current with drift back to beginning by end of dive. Look for a sand chute all the way up to the beach to exit the water from. Can get tossed onto the reef if not paying attention upon exit. Overall a good place for a checkout dive if you are staying north of Lahaina.
