Ka'anapali Cliff Diving Ceremony

November 2022

Legend tells us that the last Chief of Maui proved his spiritual strength by leaping off of the sacred Pu'u Keka'a, Black Rock, into the waters below. The ceremony is held nightly. Granted, many of the initial divers were tourists. Eventually, the "official" diver came, lit the torches, threw his torch into the water as an offering, and did two dives. For the best photography, get up close to the cliff, so the water serves as a backdrop.
