Olowalu Coral Reef

Spawning corals send out polyps that travel as far as Lana’i and Moloka’i, seeding the reefs in these locations. Therefore, Olowalu Reef is considered a mother reef. It is also a cleaning, feeding, and socializing station for the green sea turtle and manta rays. Respecting the coral reef and ocean safety is of the upmost importance. Take the time to familiarize yourself with this information that is located here and in two beachfront locations at Camp Olowalu.
