This site should be called “Five Names” as it has been known as Five Caves, Five Graves, Turtle Town, Makena Landing, and Nahuna Point.
No matter what name you call it, the dive site is a great shallow scuba dive that offers an abundance of Green Sea Turtles, multi-colored fish, eels, archways you can swim through, coral, cleaner shrimp, and so much more. Eagle Rays have also made Turtle Town a frequent destination.
This is offered as a second dive site option (with Molokini Crater usually as our first dive) for our certified scuba dive trips and it is an excellent location for snorkeling.
Our Introductory Dives are often held here, as new divers emerge ecstatic about the abundance of sea life and the ease of the dive.
The profile is 45 feet for the duration of the tank.
Other diving options along the Makena and Wailea coast of Maui are Pu’u o’lai Caverns off of Little Beach in Makena, the WWII Tank and Landing Craft wrecks off of Makena, and the Saint Anthony Wreck off of Wailea.
All dive sites are weather conditions permitting.
