On this trip, we cross the channel to the island of Lanai, whose underwater features include the dive site known worldwide as the Cathedrals. The Cathedrals and more than 20 other dive sites at Lanai, offer opportunities to enjoy the unique formations made when molten lava cools in the Pacific Ocean.
Tubes, caverns, ledges and walls of lava make excellent backdrops for underwater photography and magnificent mazes for exploration. Reticulated butterfly fish, Gold rim surgeon fish and Flame angelfish are just a few varieties of the rare fish seen in Lanai's waters.
Turtles are found on many dive sites around Lanai and Plankton rich waters frequently attract Manta rays.
As a bonus, it is not uncommon to be escorted to and from the dive sites by spinner dolphins riding the bow wave. In season, roughly from the end of December to the end of April, this trip offers an excellent opportunity to see Humpback whales.
