Notes:


Some of the best diving in Hawaii can be done in Maui - off shore near Airport beach (aka Kahekili beach). There is nice all around diving, and this is where I found the rare hawaiian sea horse. Honolua Bay is a marine life sanctuary making for a nice dive. Mala ramp in Lahaina provides for viewing of sharks, frogfish, turtles, octopus, choke marine life. Hopwever, there is nothing like seeing a couple of 1000 lb manta rays with 12 ft wingspans gliding thru the open ocean.
