If you follow the reef to the RIGHT from Kaloa landing out to the second set of buoys across from a small beach, then you’ll have the dive site to yourself! It’s quite a swim, so you will want your snorkel and your dive flag floaty with you (avoid boat traffic).
The topography turns from flat lava rock bottom into bouldery enclaves of reef harboring all sorts of cool fish that are hiding from the crowd down the coast.
A pattern in the reef caught my eye as I slowly swam over it. A puffer fish (porcupine) lay squished against the rock, his eyes saying “Youuuu doooon’t seeee meee… youuu think I’m coraaaal….” ! Hehehe 🙂
Spot the porcupine fish!
