More Dive

Me and Nate at Sunset

Our first adventure on the Big Island was a boat dive with Jacks Diving Locker. We headed out at about 4pm and saw dolphins on the way to the dive site.

Those dolphins were really fast swimmers and came right up to the boat. They wanted to race!

I had never done a boat dive before, and I was a little freaked out about jumping into the ocean with all my dive gear on. That was my big worry on the trip - not sharks or other scary fish.

For this trip we did an afternoon dive and saw lots of interesting fish and a few manta ray. Then we came up and had a sandwich and got ready for another dive. The second dive was after dark. I'll post a video of that later.

Here is a moray eel and ? a cool polka dot fish?

And here is a trumpet fish - what an interesting looking thing!

My favorite under water creature

My parents just got back from Honolulu and it was Dad's first time to snorkel. He thought he had died and gone to heaven.

I think you're very brave to dive at all...my DH would love if I would do that but I have a problem with the whole water in my face thing.

Great pictures! I did one dive off a boat and it is kind of scary when you're taking that big step, but it is so worth it!

Looks like you had a great time, thanks for sharing.
