Today the Jack’s Diving Locker crew headed to Kaloko Arches on the Kona Coast of the island of Hawaii on the 2-Tank Day Trip. Experienced dive guide and instructor, Sven Lindemann states, “Kaloko Arches is one of my very favorite dive sites. The topography is so interesting – the arches, rubble, and sand. There’s so many different kinds of creatures because of the different terrain.” And, today the list included nudibranchs, titan scorpionfish, sleepy green sea turtle, and reticulated frogfish!
Kaloko arches is located just north of Honokohau Harbor and situated off shore of a significant cultural site known as Kaloko Fish Pond marked by an expansive dry stacked sea wall (http://www.nps.gov/kaho/historyculture/kaloko-fishpond.htm). This pond is located in the Kaloko-Honokohau National Historical Park.
Underwater, the dive site Kaloko Arches is a maze with a series of lava arches, mini canyons, and nice walls covered with coral. A favorite site for Sven and many other guides and divers who go out with Jack’s Diving Locker in Kona, Hawaii.
