Deven Phillips's Dive Log
Koke'e Park on 4/15/2002
Upon reaching the signs for Koke'e park, you must climb down to the entry point with your gear. You are not allowed to park your car beside the park due to limited space. So, pull up to the park, unload your gear and leave your buddy to watch equipment whilst you find parking. Put on your gear before climbing down (or make several trips). The entry and exits are fairly simple with limited surface swim required. Swim against the current toward Hanauma Bay and you can enjoy the wall and the reef below.
Koko Kai Park on 4/15/2002
The wall entry is actually a little intimidating, but not difficult. The exit is a little difficult and not recommended in higher surf (3-4 ft.). There are many different varieties of fish and eels. Many sea turtles can be spotted. Avoid entering the canyons too far, as they narrow and the surge could cause injury. If you swim far enough out toward Hanauma Bay, you will see several sea caves with a multitude of fish. I have been told that sometimes sharks can hang out in these caves, but I have not seen them.
