Allegedly the place where Captain Cook first attempted landing on the island, Opaahi Landing today offers family-friendly activities in a natural setting. Put on your diving gear and hop in the clear, warm water in order to explore its lively world. You'll see a variety of colorful fish, shells, crabs, and even sea snakes.
