We dove this site several times over Christmas in conjunction with 5 Caves/Graves. When the surf stops entries there, Makena will still be doable. We usually surface swim to the houses at the point, then go down near the rock that has a large piece of wire coral sitting over the sand. If you swim on the sand/rock boundary, you usually see it and sometimes we've seen small gobies on the wire coral. This year I found the shark cave, first right after the point, and in pretty shallow water! It is about 10-13 feet at the entrance and we saw 3 good sized white-tipped reef sharks snoozing. On the last dive there on Dec 30th, my brother-in-law spotted a large eagle ray at the edge of the reef, apparently spooking up an octopus as there was an ink smudge in the water. He had a broken (bent) tail and circled us for 5 minutes. Great diving area, especially for cold blooded Alaskan divers!
