GENERAL DIVE SITE INFO

Fish Rock is located just outside of Manele Harbor along the south coast of Lanai.  It is comprised of two separate pinnacles one of which is a wash rock.  The smaller pinnacle has a minimum depth of 10-12 feet and drops nearly vertically to a depth of 60 plus feet on the outside.  The inside claws into a coral garden at a depth of around 40 feet.  This area is productive for smaller fish, invertebrates, and crustaceans.  There is a sand channel between the two pinnacles which often contains jacks, spotted eagle rays, and if you are lucky, helmet shells in the sand.  The wash rock pinnacle has a depth of nearly 80 feet on the outside and 40ish on the inside.  The walls are abundant with a wide variety of marine life including small fish, to rare Titan Scorpions to cup corals.  Inside is an area like an amphitheater where the waves break over the rock.  This area is super oxygenated and provides an excellent area for fish observation.
