If you are heading Hawaii and looking for places to dive, consider these top Hawaiian dive sites.    There are many great dives sites to visit.  However,  for me, the top Hawaiian Dive Sites are on Lanai, Molokai, Maui and the Big Island of Hawaii.

Scuba Diving Fish Rain, Molokai Hawaii (Steven W SMeltzer)

However, advanced /experienced divers must head for Molokai and Fish Rain.  This is the place for Hammerheads.  Fish Rain is a beautiful pinnacle that literally “rains” fish as you look for the elusive Hammerhead sharks.

Furthermore, on Maui, there are several good places.  Two of my Mala Pier, Wide Angel, Ambient Light, Maui Hawaii (Steven W Smeltzer)favorites are Molokini Crater and Mala Pier.  You can dive Mala Pier as either a boat dive or a shore dive.  However, it is really a great night dive.  In fact, it is one of my favorite spots in Hawaii.  Easy entry (off the boat ramp) and usually great visibility.  The site almost always has sharks and turtles.  Also, it has great ambient light for photography.

Manta Ray in Flight, Manta birostris,  (Walbaum, 1792), Kona Hawaii (Steven W Smeltzer)On the Big Island, you have to do the Manta Dive.  Check out the phases of the moon (seriously) before you go.  It seems that the Mantas can be seen more in the waxing and waning phases of the moon.  Furthermore, you can also check on daily sightings and help determine when it is your best chance at seeing the most Manta Rays.

For information on other dive sites go to my Hawaii Dive Sites page.. and visit my website for images of fish from around the world and reviews of other great dive sites.
