Been busy this week getting divers ready to become certified. I’ve decided that starting June 1st I will be running a special on Open Water class, so if you have been thinking (or know someone who has wanted to) get certified…… let me know. How does saving $100 sound?????
Michelle and I headed out monday morning to the Seatiger and Kewalo Pipe. Great dives and this huge school of snapper were hanging on top of the wreck. We also found a little octopus and a good sized yellowmargain moray.
Of all of the fun adventures I get to take part in, night diving has become one of my favorite. On Tuesday a small crew Laura, Keane and Dan boarded the Nori Z for some night time adventures. We hit the Corsair first and conditions were PERFECT. Lots of fish, garden eels and a massive Amberjack coming in right at the end of the dive. Nice photo of this gold ringed surgeonfish…..
Next if was off to Koko Craters for some work with Underwater Navigation. Laura and Dan did awesome and big congrats to Laura who just finished her Advanced Open Water Certification….. Dan, you are next my friend!
Busy weekend coming up as well. Afternoon charter today, afternoon charter Saturday and a morning charter on Sunday….. should be an excellent weekend, let me know if YOU want to go diving any of those days and we’ll make it happen. Or, next week should be great conditions for shore diving at Sharks Cove, so you know I’ll be there!
Aloha and thanks for diving with Kaimana Divers!

While Michelle and Mom were out running around I was busy diving, diving, diving! Great days out there too…… Yesterday I took the Vincent boys and Lisa diving. Both Brandon and Lisa were trying scuba out for the first time with a Discover Scuba Dive. Vinny is a longtime FOKDer (Friend of Kaimana Divers)….. who went on out Big Island adventure back in March. Here are some snaps. Lisa checking out at pincushion star and the brothers Vincent…..
Also, today found me meeting a crew of excited divers from the mainland. Shoga helped out with Hunter, Michelle, Heather and Tim. These guys did great….. once we figured out how much weight they needed! I also did dives 1 and 2 for Greg and Shelly. These two have been working hard to become Oahu’s newest scuba divers. Just two more dives guys! Here is a little pre dive pic of Hunter gearing up!
More dives tomorrow with a trip out to a shipwreck in the AM and certification dives in the afternoon for Greg and Shelly. Awesome diving with everyone and thanks so much for scuba diving Hawaii with Kaimana Divers.
Aloha and Happy Cinco de Kaioo!
So with my mother in town it was time to hang the wetsuit up and get some on shore activities going. As part of our tour and an ealry Mothers Day present we decided to head over to Molokai and see the famous leper colony of Kalaupapa. Our transportation (besides Island Air) were these lovely beasts……
The Mule ride down the sheer 1700 foot cliffs to the town is not to be missed. Great views of the pacific and all of the landmarks of the old settlement. The historical tour on an old blue schoolbus was incredible too… lots of history on the politics of a settlement set up solely for people with leprosy.
Of interest to me was the church Father Damien built in Kalawao, the original settlement on the penninsula. Part of the church was actually built on Oahu, taken down and reassembled on Molokai. Here is his grave and where some of his remains lie. For a good read on the history of the colony, mom reccomends “Moloka’I” by Alan Brennert.
Finally, a good shot of us both at the far end of Kalawao……. back to “dive” reports tomorrow!
