LURE OF THE MONK SEAL !! july 14

hard to describe what a treat it is to see a Hawaiin Monk Seal !  they are big, swift-moving, and often intelligently curious.  they can gracefully appear and disappear like a shadow in the water. Or they can swim right up to you, trying to get a good look at your face, cocking their head, and […]

NAKED AND AFRAID!! 6/25

is one of those survival TV shows, and it can be very entertaining, as it is quite fun watching people being afraid while they’re naked (and they’re not even dating)!  Fortunately  we don’t have to struggle to survive while diving on the Sea Fox, as it is a fantastic dive boat – big, fast, roomy, […]

OFF THE DEEP END !! 6.21

SHARK DIVE AT THE CORSAIR AIRPLANE !!

for me sharks are always just so compelling to dive with.  there is definitely some primordial connection with these creatures that stirs the blood and fascinates the eye!  The downed airplane is at 107 feet, and this day, conditions were perfect – mild current and great viz.  coming down the line from the Sea Fox […]

WHAT THE HECK DOES DPV STAND FOR?? 24 March

haha, that’s an easy one for serious divers.  Diver Propulsion Vehicle, and we’re not talking about fins here!  fun day, as always, on the boat today, as instructor David was teaching a DPV course.  these little underwater scooters are awesome, fun, and great in a current!  and always fun to watch them zoom around, like […]
