SCUBA in Hawaii - 05/2005

The highlight of our trip to Hawaii was our underwater adventures.

Our first dive was the wreck of the Corsair, an old WWII fighter plane.

107 feet down to the bottom, the plane is the only "real" wreck from WWII in Hawaii; the rest were all sunk on purpose.

Fish and Urchin, hanging out in the cockpit.

Our second dive was Spitting Caves. Named for the series of the caves along the wall, the dive was a drift dive, which made finding the boat at the end pretty easy.

One of the problems with switching from the Carribean to the Pacific is that I don't know the names of all the fish.

And I haven't had a chance to buy a book about them yet either, so not so much with naming all these cool new fish, but suffice it to say they were a ton of fun to see.

Cool litte guy hanging out behind the urchin. Lots of urchins along the dives, so you had to be very careful where you put your hand down.

And a spotted eel.

There were a ton of these "Finding Nemo" fish on the reefs as well. Plus the yellow trumpet fish was nice.
