On a recent Captain Andy's snorkel tour the seas were too high up on the Napali coast so we went south to Kipu Kai. What a treat. The water is crystal clear and though deeper than right off a shore reef - the number and variety of fish is amazing. This is the setting for the movie The Descendants land (supposedly on the east side of Kauai). We've been all over the island and this spot is amazing. No turtles but totally worth it.
