Reefs & Walls
Our reefs and walls cover all four corners of the Oahu compass; the Northern, Southern, Eastern and Western Shores, each with its own distinct characteristics. So much that, in fact, some sites are dubbed seasonal and can only be admired by enthusiasts during certain times of the year. These reefs provide the lifeblood of our marine environment; supporting the abundant life forms that makeup our oceans. Oahu reefs offer divers the chance to see turtle cleaning stations, rare corals and unique marine life, along with some stunning wall dives as well. For history aficionados, some areas are even said to have been ancient Hawaiian fishing grounds.
