Scuba Diving in Horseshoe Reef, Kailua Kona, Hawaii USA
The town hosts many interesting historical sites and is famous for its Kona Coffee cultivations and the crystal clear sea. Kona International Airport is located at fifteen minutes away in the south of the main town. Along the sea side, there are shops and schools to buy or rent diving gear as well as take lessons if you are a beginner.
Horseshoe Reef is ideal for beginners. The Reef is named like that because it is shaped like a horse shoe with lava tube projections. It has an average depth of 18 m/60 ft and maximum depth 24.4 m/80 ft with low sea current and good visibility.
The biodiversity of the bottom is outstanding because except from the sea turtles, tropical fish, eels and corals, there are lava tubes and white tip reef sharks resting under ledges during the day. Horseshoe Reef is accessible only by boat from the Honokohau Marina where you can charter a boat.
