Hawaiian Fish
Due to the Hawaii's isolation, approximately 30% of the fish found in Hawaii cannot be found anywhere else in the world. The fish pictured below are just a few you can expect to see at dives sites around the islands. Please follow the guidelines at the bottom of this page and help us protect and preserve these beautiful reefs for generations to come.

Please follow the following guidelines when diving or snorkeling in Hawaii and help us protect and preserve these beautiful reefs for generations to come.
  • Avoid touching living marine organisms with your body and equipment.
  • Never touch or stand on living coral.
  • Take care on caves dives and try to spend as little time as possible inside as air bubbles cancause damage to fragile organisms.
  • Be aware of your fins, even without contact, the heavy surge from fin strokes can cause damage to reefs.
  • Secure gauges, computer comsoles and the octopus regulator so they're not dangling like miniture wrecking balls.
  • Be careful when swiming in strong currents with kicking and handholds.
  • Avoid the temptation to collect coral or shells.
    Ensure you take home all your trash and secure it while you are aboard a dive boat.
  • Minimize your disturbance of marine mammals and NEVER ride on the backs of turtles or manta rays.
