Evaluation

*Average:    3.25
Firehouse is one of three sites most commonly dived by locals in the summer time on Oahu's North Shore. It begins with a bouldery topography (watch for nudibranchs), then gives way to lava tubes (to the left) or a long ridge (to the right, in front of the Firehouse). Following the ridge, you end up in 78-80 feet, depending on the tide [be aware of current, which can get quite strong]. I've seen stingrays here periodically for years. The ridge is home to eels and, occasionally, turtles (honu). To the left is a great feature we call the Skylight. There is also a wall ~25 feet tall with an inland sand channel. This site takes many, many dives to adequately explore. When you're tired of Shark's Cove, check it out!
