If you are heading to the islands this year for some fun in the sun and places to dive there are several great spots to consider. There are a number of top Hawaiian Dive sites to visit and some of my favorite spots are on Lanai, Molokai, Maui and the Big Island of Hawaii.
If you are an advanced /experienced diver definitely head for Molokai and Fish Rain. This is the place for Hammerheads and a beautiful pinnacle that literally “rains” fish as you look for the elusive Hammerhead sharks.
On Maui, there are several good places but two of my favorites are Molokini Crater and Mala Pier. You can dive Mala Pier as either a boat dive or a shore dive and it is really a great night dive and one of my favorite spots in Hawaii. Easy entry (off the boat ramp) and usually great visibility, always sharks and turtles and great for ambient light photography.
On the Big Island you have to do the Manta Dive. Check out the phases of the moon (seriously) before you head out as it seems that the Mantas can be seen more in the waxing and waning phases of the moon. You can also check on daily sitings and help determine when it is your best chance at seeing the most Manta Rays.
