This is one of Oahu's most popular dive site and is a superb shallow water dive located 100 yards of Kepuhi Point. The V-Shaped verging of two open-ended lava tubes forms Makaha Caverns. The topography is very flat, giving the spacious room a more geometric, man-made look. Outside the cavern, the site spreads over a large area. Working seaward, the coral thins out - but the pockets are home to octopus, and several species of eels.
The site also has five resident turtles and this adds to the already abundant photographic opportunities. These are, in turn, accentuated by transiting dolphins and an occasional manta ray. This dive site is a great spot for a night dive and the look of this site changes dramatically with artificial light. Sea Life: Large school of ta'ape cluster near main entrance, octopus, several species of eels, White Tip Reef Sharks, five resident Green Sea Turtles, transiting dolphins and occasional manta rays.
