Spitting Cave

Spitting Cave is one of Oahu’s more exciting, deeper dives and is accessed via boat only. This dive is for more advanced divers as it starts around 50 feet and drops down to 140 feet with natural caves carved out in the lava rocks. The current is also fairly strong here so it is considered a drift dive.

This is a great location to see the endangered Hawaiin Monk Seals that live in this area. You may also see a tiger shark, Galapagos shark, or white tip reef sharks.
