Turtle Town is so named for a turtle cleaning station located in just 20 feet of water. Due to great numbers of tourist snorkel boats, many of the honu have departed the now-famous reef for less crowded waters. This area is located just to the south of the finger / ridge that is located on the South side of the 5 Graves entry. It is easily accessible from the 5 Graves entry (a 5-minute swim around the point). This site is a small component of the normal dive from 5 Graves to Makena Landing. However, we have seen schools of Heller's Barracuda here, as well as manta rays during siltier conditions in the winter time. One lucky dive boat anchored just offshore in 50 feet was fortunate several winters ago to witness a very low-draft humpback whale!
