hi.
Looking for the best island and area for shore dives. We’re thinking of trying out Hawaii in in November.
thanks,

You don’t mention if you’ll have a rental car. The two shore dives I did were not near a dive shop so renting tanks and getting them and me to the entry point cost more than a boat trip. Plus the car gives you a place to lock up the gear bag.

When I was stationed in Hawaii I made a few dives. The best and easiest to access (IMO) was the north shore of Oahu. Shore access. It doesn’t get too deep and there are some very cool lava tubes to explore. There are some hazards associated with the big breakers so study the area really well before going in.

Maui has many nice, protected, areas too. One of them is a boat dive to a Horseshoe shaped reef. Very cool.
