The Bubble Cave is one of the Maui MUST SEE Dives!!! This is a lava tube that is in approx 12 feet of water and goes back about 50 into a chamber that you can surface and remove your regulator and feel the air squeeze and water mist up as the surge comes and goes. Lots of turtles hang out inside along with white tip sharks.
