Tons of great photos here…. Big thanks to Anna, Matt, Chris, Seah, JP, Neal, Nav, Ski, Rich, Hollie, Nate and Chris the Mac for taking me out on some of the best dives in recent memory.
Highlights include A Manta Ray, 2 Monk Seals, Dolphins, Sharks and almost every dive has been set to the soundtrack of Humpback Whales singing in the distance!
The Dive Club FOKD (Friends of Kaimana Divers) is in full swing and looking forward to our Kona Dive trip in March! It is however filling up fast so if you need details or would like to attend, please drop me an email at email@example.com.
It took some time, but I have the video all mixed down. Now, because some of the quality is lost with uploading it to youtube it looks a little bitmaped but I think you will get the point.
If anyone is interested I will keep an HD version on my computer. Thanks to Anna for the additional video clips. Pay particular attention to the sounds they make in the first clip, the kiss on the head and the air release by the larger of the two.
On Tuesday, Anna, Matt, JP and Seah boarded the Nori Z for what would soon become one of my top 5 dives of my life. After a great dive at our WWII Airplane wreck we headed over to Spitting Caves to do a drift dive.
Condtions were current with light south winds and little swell. The visibility was down a bit, but the glass like surface conditions made it impossible to stay away. Good thing too. A few minutes into the dive we spotted an octopus and then this…..
The above photos were takedn by Anna Curtis and Manini Max. I was too busy shooting video…. about 10 minutes total. I promise to have the video uploaded by next week. It is quite rare to see the Hawaiian Monk Seal and we were fortunate to see two! In total we spent about 15 minutes watching them interact!
What a great holiday season. Tons of excellent diving and heaps of friends and fun. Anna brought her family out on Xmas eve and we had a great time exploring China Wall with Jamie diving too!
Last weekend, Michael and Griselda were out visiting from California. Also joining us was Jen who was stoked to get back into diving and enjoying the holiday here in paradise. A perfect day for Griselda to do her first dives of her life. We managed to see sharks, an octopus plenty of turtles and all sorts of other fun critters. Looks like they had fun!
A busy weekend followed too with Sean taking his family out for a dive on Saturday and Steve finishing his Open Water Course. Great dives too and it looked like Pete hadn’t missed out on the last 40 years of not diving!
Sunday Holly, Anna, and Steve were treated to a rare find. A Manta Ray on our surface interval. Great time too with about 5 minutes of this 8 footer showing us her stuff. OF COURSE I DIDN’T BRING MY CAMERA!
OK, All the best to you all in the new year. Big dives coming up Sat, Sun, Mon, Tues and Wed….. drop me a line or give me ring to join in.
