I studied ShoreDiving.com before my first trip to Oahu. I don't dive, but really enjoy snorkeling. Makaha was my favorite site on the island. It was easy to get to, the beach was very good, and the access to the reef pretty easy. I really enjoyed the sea turtles. I expect diving would allow me to get farther away from shore and into more spectacular areas. I would recommend the area to snorkelers.
