Twas The Day After Christmas

Twas the day after Christmas and all through Maunalua Bay sea creatures were swimming and roaming about. Today we had a great group of divers on the boat for some Christmas diving celebrations. With great underwater conditions we headed out to LCU for our wreck dive. The visibility was over 100 feet today at LCU! It really was beautiful down there. We saw one spotted eagle ray cruising around the wreck for almost our entire 30 minute dive. We also found a white tip reef shark napping underneath one of the cement blocks. And a hawaiian green sea turtle even stopped by the wreck to say hello. A few moray eels around the wreck today and tons of fish milling about. A beautiful and relaxing dive on the wreck today. We headed back up to the boat for some hot chocolate and made our way over to Fantasy reef for the drift dive. The visibility was incredible at fantasy reef today as well. We had a great drift along the reef with lots and lots of sea creatures along the way. In one hole we found some unlikely friends sharing the christmas spirit, a yellow margin moray, a slipper lobster, and a swimming crab all in the same hole! We saw lots of different moray eels along the reef today. Quite a few sea turtles. Another white tip reef shark, sleeping again, feeling the holiday slumber. And to top it all off, a christmas miracle, two massive frog fish! Overall an awesome day of diving with some awesome dive buddies. Thanks to all our return dive buddies for coming back to see us and to all my new dive buddies from today I hope to see you out on the boat again soon! And a special congratulations to Mehrdad and Laura for completing the nitrox specialty! Happy Holidays to all!
