Manuka Bay / Hawaiian Islands

Angel fish
Manuka Bay is one of the most interesting and famous dive sites of Kona island. It is a wide and secure bay. The underwater landscape mostly consists of large magmatic “fingers” covered with a thick carpet of soft and hard corals. In the lagoon divers can observe dolphins.
Night diving is fascinating and unforgettable – magmatic ergs and coral gardens in the light of the torches look like an underwater castle from a fairy tale. Besides, exotic night visitors such as Spanish dancers can be often spotted at the shallow water.
