Hawaii has some of the best scuba diving in the world.  From large pelagic species to lava tubes, hard corals, nudibranchs to a wide variety of endemic species. Dive sites here differ greatly from those in warmer, more temperate environments, but that does not mean they are any less spectacular.  In fact, one of my favorite dive sites on the planet is on the north eastern end of Molokai.  This dive site, know as Fish Rain, is on Moku Ho’oniki rock and in the Pailolo channel.  It is famous as a Hammerhead dive, but the reef here is amazing which some of the richest biodiversity anywhere in Hawaii or for that matter in the world.Hawaiian Dive Site Reviews, Fish Rain.
