Notes:

Wanted to try a new dive site today that I have been looking at for a while. Getting out to the dive spot in the kayak was a bit harry today with the surf, but I finally made it after two attempts, just before I was going to give up for the day.

Lots and lots of fish, especially Tangs, Triggerfish and Barracuda and several Hawaiian Green Sea Turtles. Inside one of the swim-throughs I saw a HUGE moray eel that must have been at least 5 or 6 foot long and fat. He definitely hasn’t missed many meals. Will have to come back and do this site again when I have more time.

  1. Quick question for you, I noticed you said 5mil?? Really?

    1. Yea, I’m a wimp, lol. I get cold easily so I wear a 5/4 most of the time. The water is just getting warm enough now for me to switch over to my 3 mil for the rest of the summer. Up until about May I was wearing a 7 mil for my deeper or longer dives to stay warm, lol.

      1. LOL, and I thought I was bad!

        1. I moved here from the mainland so I wouldn’t get cold anymore, and sometimes in the winter we still have those brutally cold winter nights when it gets all the way down in the low 60’s, lol.

          1. LOL…..low 60’s break out the 8M, farmer johns. Hehe. 🙂
