Sergeant Major received its name from the schooling sergeant major damselfish that are found here. Located on the southwest of Lanai it is a great dive sight for divers who like to explore through every nook and cranny. This site is has almost every type of marine life imaginable, green sea turtles and lots of interesting lava formations that run seaward. A beautiful archway connects the three formations and occasionally white-tip reef sharks can be seen around the archway and the formations.
Sergeant Minor, is a continuation of Sergeant Major, there is a large sandy area that separates these two dive sights. The highlight of this site is the 50-foot lava tube, which is home to a large but and friendly moral eel. If you get the chance to take a close look at a large eel be sure to check for a cleaner shrimp that may be present on or around his face. These cleaner shrimp are known for their bravery and their ability to clean a multitude of teeth is a very short period of time.
Both of these dive sites just southwest of Kamaiki Point face the open ocean so make sure to keep your eyes open and occasionally look to deeper water for larger game fish, dolphins. During the winter months from December to April Humpback Whales can also be seen at this dive site. Other interesting sightings might be Moorish Idols, Lava Tubes, Pyramid Butterfly Fish, Moray Eels and Pelagic fish.
