The steps lead right into the water where they have built up a protective barrier for wave action. Great place to fin up in higher tide. If you go out to the left you can drop down about 30 - 40 feet the otherside of the jacks. Like Kadena Steps, this area can get kind of turbid and murkey if there is a lot of wave action. You will see all kinds of coral, both hard and soft. Also a diverse collection of fish. Lots of star fish the last time we dove this one. If you go right, depending on the height of the tide you may have to walk over coral until you get into deep enough water to swim. There are sometimes schools of barracuda swimming around here. The wrasses keep busy with their cleaning stations and you'll see snappers and parrot fish taking advantage of their hospitality. (Kadena Steps/Kadena Seawall) This dive site is one of my favorites. Easy to get in and out. Very diverse as far as fish and coral life. Lots of eels as well as sea snakes. A lot of instructors favor this site as it's easy to navigate and has a sandy bottom. The soft corals here are beautiful and the fish are friendly and not afraid of divers. The clarity can be affected by excessive rain fall and windy conditions. Look closely in cracks and crevices for small macro life including cleaner shrimps and small crabs. There are also usually a lot of nudibranchs to be found. The coral garden across the top of the reef is spectacular. The anemone fish around this area are not afraid of divers and can be aggressive. Unless you have gloves on keep your hands away from them. If you hear a snapping sound look around for the anemone. These guys swim around snapping thier jaws when divers get too close. During the winter months we were able to hear whale songs from the visiting Humpback whales in the area. Although we could not see the whales and had no idea how far away they were, we definetely heard them and it was amazing!
