10 Top Dive Sites in the Pacific

Manta Ray Village, Hawaii

3 of 10

Divers from all corners of the world have long been attracted to Hawaii’s unique underwater treasures. Large bommies, arches, craters and lava tubes create a breath-taking backdrop to the shipwrecks and abundant marine life including turtles, frogfish, schooling sharks and a number of species indigenous to the island. It is also home to the world’s most famous night dive where beautiful manta rays seem to dance in the water under the stars.

Fantastic shore diving can be found along the island's leeward western coast. Both sides of sheltered Honolua Bay, on the island’s westernmost tip, feature well-developed coral reefs that are separated by a sand bottom. Molokini Crater, the signature crescent crater three miles off the leeward shore, is Maui's most popular dive site and is ideal for beginner divers who can explore the sheltered coral rubble and sandy terraces inside the crater.
