A windy Wednesday met our 3 divers Andrew, Joel, and David as the Sea Fox left the dock headed to our first destination: LCU. The sunken transport WW2 era ship that seems to be a hotbed of activity here in Maunaloa Bay. Its one of my favorite site due to the amount of life found here. Today was no different…
ISLAND DIVERS HAWAII DIVE REPORTS
We love diving in Maunalua Bay on any day because of all the life and wrecks that are hidden under her waters. But there are days that can only be classified as EPIC and today was one of those days. 2 lucky divers joined me today aboard the Sea Fox: Monica and Rob. They chose to dive the wreck LCU as our first dive site, and she did not disappoint us. We were met by an ocean that looked like glass on the surface and perfect conditions at the site: 100 ft plus visibility and no current. We dropped down the lines and into the upside down wreck…
It was a beautiful sunny day and Captain Joe just got done with his briefing. We headed out into Maunalua Bay and the 82 degree water looked very inviting. We made our way to Koko Craters which had good visibility and a max depth of 36 ft. We had some mild current underneath, but didn’t stop us from seeing turtles, pufferfish, hawaiian state fish, trumpetfish, seargant majors, and star pillows.
A beautiful Aloha Friday broke out this morning as our fearless dive group boarded the Sea Fox looking forward to an exciting day out in Maunalua Bay. Ready to explore the ocean blue was Aaron, Alex, Andrew, Dustin, Elizabeth, Jimmy, Heather, Grady, Tammy, John, Marcus, Matt and Ty. A great group of excited and experienced divers. We set our sites on LCU, but with a ripping current it was decided that we would DRIFT THE BARGES! YAY MY FAVORITE! We dropped down onto Baby Barge first…
Another beautiful day broke out in Maunalua Bay as our diving friends boarded the Sea Fox to drop below the calm waters of the Pacific Ocean. Along for a great day of diving was Advanced Open Water Students Mike and Katherine, along with certified divers Judy, Ed, Jon, Maxine, David, Chris, and Jaclyn. We departed the marina and headed off to our first site: Kahala Barge.
We had another beautiful day for diving. The sun out made everyone ready to hop into the water. We made our way out into the bay with Captain Joe at the helm. We hooked up to our first site, Koko Craters. There was a strong surface current, but all the divers still seemed ready to check out what laid underneath us at around 36 feet. We made our way in and descended. On this dive we saw turtles, eels, trigger fish, butterfly fish, and many other types of marine life.
The day was hot and made us ready to get into the amazing 80 degree water. We had certified divers, student divers, and DSD’s eager to see what the ocean would let us see that day. We talked it over and quickly figured out that Koko Craters was the site to check out. Captain Joe got us to the 36 ft site where we encountered a variety of sea life. We saw turtles, eels, trigger fish, puffer fish, and much more.
As the iconic Tony the Tiger would say, and you will understand the reference soon :)! A beautiful Monday morning sprang to life as a adventurous group of divers boarded the Sea Fox for adventure… and they were not disappointed! Ready to tackle Maunalua Bay were Ben, Breawna, Cory, Dan, Robert, Jai, James, Joe Kim, John, Michael, Mike, and Christina. We motored out of the harbor enroute to our first site: LCU.
It was another glorious afternoon in Hawaii as the Sea Fox set out into Maunalua Bay with a boat load of certified divers and open water students. All were treated to an ample supply of sea turtles and tropical fishes.
Dive Sites: Angler’s Reef, 40 ft., Turtle Canyons, 40 ft.
It was a wonderful day out on the Sea Fox today off the southeast side of Oahu. The water was crystal clear as we dropped in on the Kahala Barge. As we got down to the site there were reef fish all about with schools of pyramid butterflyfish and wrasses swimming around. We also spotted a yellow hairy hermit crab hiding out in the wreck.
