Menpachi Cave is the longest known underwater lava tube in Hawaii at 120 feet in length in a ridge that runs parallel to the shoreline.  There are also many large archways and shorter lava tubes shoreward.  This site is named after the schools of squirrelfish and Cardinalfish (Menpachi in Hawaiian) that occupy the darker areas of the lava tubes together with many unusual invertebrates.  Schooling goatfish and bluestripe Snapper(ta’ape) are often seen at this site along with the typical Hawaiian sea life of tangs, parrotfish and many species of butterflyfish.
