Notes:

Today was my first time diving with the Honolulu Dive Club, a group of divers that I met on Meetup. This was also my first time diving at Makaha Caverns.

Unfortunately for some reason my iGills only recorded the first part of the dive and the end of the dive and showed me at the surface for the majority of the dive. I have no idea what caused that, so I also attached a snapshot below from my Suunto Vyper Air wrist computer DM4 software that recorded the whole dive.

We did not know exactly where the caverns were, just a general idea and so we finally found the “caverns” right at the end of our dive so we only got to see a small part of it. Will have to come back for another dive now that we know how to find the spot. We did see one small Hawaiian Green Sea Turtle and some fish, but not nearly as plentiful as Sharks Cove. Saw several moray eels and one lobster.
