This island is an inactive, sunken volcanic cinder cone three miles off Maui Island's south coast. This small island is a designated marine life preserve where the south side provides divers with a vertical wall.

The interior of the crescent-shaped islet provides waters for snorkeling. This island is not inhabited and landing is prohibited. There is a large bird population and some sparse vegetation.

Morning and afternoon snorkeling and scuba diving charters leave from the harbors in Lahaina and Maalaea. Most charters include transport, gear, equipment, instruction and lunch.
