Completed all of the required skills for the DPV Specialty course on the first dive so we decided to just do a “fun dive” and tour the area. Instead of riding the boat from the first dive site to the second dive site we decided to use the DPV’s and tour a large area on the way to the second dive site.
Got to tour Kaiser Reef, Channel Reef, and finally Kewalo Pipe and the coral reef around it. Saw Trumpet Fish, and Moray Eels on the dive. At the boat harbor we saw a Stingray with about a 6′ wingspan gliding under the boat at the dock looking for fish scraps dropped from the nearby fishing tour boats.
