Pu'u Keka'a, known as Black Rock, is an ancient site that Hawaiians called a ka'uhane, or "souls's leap", a place where the sould of the dead would leap to the gods. Today it is a very popular snorkeling and diving spot, frequented by green sea turtles. On most evenings, to honor the Hawaiian tradition, a man blows a conch shell, lights the torches that line the rocks, acknowledges the gods and leaps into the water.
