Lava Tube Dive
Oahu Lava Tube Dives
Beautiful and unique dives in world-renowned Pupukea Marine Life Preserve, known locally as “Sharks Cove”. Here we encounter underwater topography such as lava tubes and tunnels, trenches, arches and an abundance of protected marine life such as turtles, monk seals, octopi, rays and a plethora of native fish!
What is a Lava Tube?
A lava tube is a lava cave that can form when lava, or pele in Hawaiian, flows beneath the surface of hardened rock. As the underground flow slows and cools, tunnels can form as it creates a crust around itself. Underwater, this creates a truly spectacular seascape few people see. Tunnels, caverns, arches, pillars and trenches resulting from this geological process are spread throughout some of the dives we offer at Banzai Divers Hawaii.
