Turtle Town/ Five Caves
Turtle Town is a guest favorite for it’s amazing lava ridges, lava tubes, caves and swim throughs. Two lava ridges, that run perpendicular to shore and lava rocks create shelter for green sea turtles and reef fish. As you move closer to shore where the ridges meet the coast there are several arches and overhangs with sponge growth and colorful cup coral. Continuing closer into the Makena Landing area you find the shark cave, where white tip reef sharks can often time, be found, and the bubble cave, which offers you a chance to surface and breathe without your regulator in your mouth. Green sea turtles abound and are very people friendly in this area. Frogfish, cleaner shrimp and pipefish are very common in Turtle Town.
