Tunnel / Hawaiian Islands

Tunnel
The flows of the coagulated lava and rough volcanic activity have created a unique fancy landscape. Powerful lava “fingers” go under the water from the surface forming channels and canyons. The largest of them (the dive site was named after it) is 10m/33ft wide and 5m/16ft deep. Its length is about 20m/66ft. Thanks to a unique landscape, marine flora and fauna of this dive site is rather varied. Besides popular coral fish divers can find here a rare toadfish. Large sharks often can be seen here as well. The walls of the Tunnel are covered with colorful corals. Currents are usually medium and visibility is not less than 15m/49ft.
