Description:

Dive into the warm, cerulean waters that encircle Molokai for a day of shark spotting and undersea exploration. Thanks to your dive site's remote location, you can experience an untouched reef habitat.

Begin your tour at Moku Ho'o Niki, a freestanding rock that is about a mile off the northeast shore of Molokai. Dive in to explore the wonders of the aquatic world. As you drift along a sloping reef, you can witness a unique “fish rain,” which gets its name from the abundant schools of pyramid butterfly fish, yellow tangs, and lauwiliwilinukunukuoioi (long nose butterfly fish) that love to swim in the area.

Then, get ready to head out to “blue water.” After swimming over the top of a lava finger, you have a chance to dive to a depth of 60 to 70 feet (18–21 m), where you may see hammerhead and Galpagos sharks. While there is no guarantee of viewing sharks—due to the unruly nature of wildlife—the chances are high that you'll spot these creatures that congregate in this area, one of the few sites where hammerhead sharks school within a day's travel from land.

As your day comes to a close and are returned to land, you are left with lasting memories of the ocean surrounding the Hawaiian Islands.

Please note that since this trip crosses the Pailolo Chanel, considered by many to be one of the roughest channels in the world, this experience is only suitable for advanced divers.
