Area 300 feet or less from the ferry slip is now off limits, including the dry dock. Use extreme caution when diving in a flooding current here (water moving north to south).

This site is essentially closed due to construction of a new bridge. Diving may still be done there but you may run the risk of law enforcement involvement. Construction is scheduled for at least another year.

Dove here twice during my visit to Maui, once during the day, once at night. Ease of entry and simple topography makes for a great beginner dive and excellent night dive. Saw turtles, octopus and two eagle rays. Fun encounter with a hungry moray, fed a couple of bivalves found near his hole.

I am very familiar with this site as a free diver as well as scuba. Overall I rate this site as an advanced dive. The entry is fairly technical, especially if there is any surf. The topography is complex, especially if you attempt to enter any caves (use extreme caution whenever entering any overhead environment). Finally, planned as an entry at 5 Graves and exit at Makena Landing watch your air consumption, it's a lot of swimming and you are bound to be a hover if there is any surge or current. Animal life is amazing here. I recommend this as an early morning dive, surf comes up (and vis goes down) as the afternoon approaches.
