HELP ME WITH RATINGS

The islands of Niihau and tiny Lehua are located 17 miles off the coast of Kauai's Barking Sands Beach. These islands are in Kauai's rain-shadow, so are very dry. Consequently, there is little runoff leaving the surrounding waters extremely clear. Pyramid Point is a haven for monk seals, sandbar sharks and other deep water marine life.

  

  

Ten thousand years ago, the sea-level was much lower and rivers cut deep canyons, that now lie underwater. A steep bluff goes straight down 400 feet to the ocean floor, be careful you don't go down too far!
