General Information

Kauai is at the north end of the island chain. The water is a few degrees cooler than Maui or Kona. There is less coral and more algae. This means a LOT of turtles, and a somewhat different selection of critters than on the other islands.

The best diving is on the southwest side, between Port Allen and Koloa Landing.

Acanthurus dussumieri (Eyestripe Surgeonfish)

Gonioinfradens paucidentata (Red Swimming Crab)
