One of the best shore dives on Oahu. Sharks cove is located on the north shore of Oahu. Diving is limited to summer months when the 30 foot surf is on holiday. Get there early as parking fills up fast. There are lots of dives to do there. All are fun and range from 20-60 FSW. Vis is usually 50-75 feet. Be prepared to do a little climbing down to get the the entry points. After you've seen turtles, angel, scorpion & butterfly fish, sharks & eels, shrimp, all kinds of nudibraches and the occational eagle ray, you can bask in the Hawaiian sun to get warm and enjoy the rest of your day. Stop by Matzumoto's on the way home for theee best SHAVE ICE.
