Notes:

This was a fun dive getting used to the new Excursion 2 BCD that I just switched over to before I did my Peak Performance Buoyancy specialty course on the next dive.

On this dive I just cruised around the Koko Craters area getting comfortable with the BCD while watching the Hawaiian Green Sea Turtles as they relaxed under the overhangs of the crater rim.
