I have to agree with Koala Landing. We dove this area everyday for one week and saw lots of things. Easy entry, boat ramp, even had carpet on it. This is also just minutes from a dive shop that we got our air tanks from.
With the right guide I think you'd find Koloa Landing a fantastic dive. I dove there this am and it was great. We saw several octopus, an endemic Hawaiian Lionfish, numerous green sea turtles, harlequin shrimp, bandit angelfish, spotted eagle ray....
Feel free to pm me with specific questions and I'll be happy to help you out with anything I can...
I am coming to kauai in March, but can probably only go diving 1 day - 2 dives. I'm an experienced active diver. With limited time, is Koloa landing better than Sheraton? Like the idea of a shore dive as I don't particularly like going on cattle boats unless the boat dive site is by far superior. By chance, anyone diving 3/20-3/22 that I can buddy up with? Thanks, you can pm me if you are available.
You'll get the most from your dives with a professional guide.
I don't need any hand or gear holding either. However, I was VERY please to have hired Fathom Five to guide me at Koloa Landing. Their briefings and critter spotting are tremendous. For instance, on my first dive there, DM Seth told me about fish behavior that I would see on the dive BEFORE it happened. Then, as the various species did their thing, he could simply point it out.
No way I would have noticed, let alone understood, what was happening and why.
In addition, many of the great local critters are rather cryptic. You have to know where and what to look for.
