Notes:

We decided to head towards Waikiki so that we could be able to see the fireworks that were scheduled to be fired at Ala Moana Beach Park tonight on our surface interval.

This was the first time I had seen fireworks from the water and the view was spectacular. We definitely had a lot better view from out here on the water than we would have had from Ala Moana Beach park. I am so glad we chose to do our second night dive over here now.

Notes:

This dive was a first for me, I have never dove off of an inflatable RIB before. Doing a bankroll into the water was definitely different from what I am used to. Saw lots of jellies in the water tonight, luckily I was not stung by any of them though. This was only my third night dive on the Corsair and it was much better than last time with the current being much, much lighter. Actually had an enjoyable dive this time.
