Today’s dive at Baby Barge was amazing. The current was strong near the surface and it carried tons of tiny particles. Some of the particles were the stinging kind and some were the round, translucent, about the size of a dime and had a crazy psycidelic pattern kind. It made my safety stop with Mike at the end of our dive together vey interesting. During the dive on baby barge we got to see a turtle emerging from the turtle cave below the wreck. Once the turtle was gone it opened the cave up to reveal a junior sized white tip reef shark. How exciting!
At depth at Baby Barge the current was almost non-exist which is rare here in HI and Mike and I took full advantage. It was the laziest, most rejuvenating dive in a long time. It is moments like these were I absolutely fall in love with diving all over again.
Our second dive at Keanu Reef we spotted a slipper lobster exposed and out of his hole. Which is super rare so I included the video below. We dropped into Keanu reef to find the current was moving fast there. We did our best to help each other spot the eels, puffer fish, elk horn, and antler coral that covers this dive site. The corals are teeming with life and it’s pretty overwhelming to see so many fish climbing all over this one coral head in the middle of not much else.
