Notes:

A DiveBuddy.com member was on island this week and wanted to do some shore dives so we decided to try out Electric Beach. The visibility was a little lower than normal today, but we still had two good dives and I got to put my new Dive Trailer into use.

We saw a couple Hawaiian Green Sea Turtles, Hawaiian Barracuda, and a Moray Eel, but no sharks today.

Logan had never used a DPV before so I gave him a “crash course” in safely using a DPV, he loved it and plans on purchasing one for himself now.

To keep him from having to rent gear for the dive I loaned him a set of fins, weights, and 2 tanks. No need to go out of the way to the dive shop.
