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.
ISLAND DIVERS HAWAII DIVE REPORTS
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 :)!

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.
Another beautiful morning in Maunalua Bay; the sun was shining and the winds were down. We opted to do two drift dives due to the strong incoming tidal current. The visibility was outstanding and good times were had by all.

It was a nice day out on the water this morning, scuba diving off the southeast side of Oahu. We had a wonderful group of divers all diving nitrox as we headed to the LCU for the first dive. We had some current as we tied up to the site and some great visibility as we got down the line. There were fish all about the wreck with wrasses, butterflyfish, and snapper swimming about. There were also a couple turtle s resting on the top of the wreck. Soon we were off to the second dive site.
