Once we arrive we don’t waste any time getting in the water. We go out for a day of diving with Island Divers where we start the day off with a wreck called LCU, short for landing craft utility. The LCU has been underwater for about 20 years and sits in 80 feet of water. It was sunk purposefully to become an artificial reef and create new habitat for sea critters. This dive treats us to some great marine life including tiny nudibranchs, spotted eagle rays, turtles, and some old boots!
Then we hop back on the boat and head over to a site called Sea Caves which is located just around the corner from Oahu’s famous Hanauma Bay. We jump in and swim straight over to a wall where we enter into a lava tube that opens up into a massive underwater cavern. Here we come across tons of awesome critters including more sharks and turtles, devil’s scorpionfish, more nudibranchs, and a wire coral goby just to name a few. This dive blew us away!!!
With our first day of diving complete, we thought it would be fun to hike up to the top of the crater at Diamond Head State Monument. A big outrigger paddle race was about to cross the finish line in Waikiki, and Diamond Head made the perfect lookout point to scope out all the action. After an awesome but exhausting day, we head to the beach by our house for a killer sunset.
If you love scuba, travel, adventure, exploration, conservation, and all things aquatic, we really hope you will follow us on our journey.
Our goal in making these videos is to show the world all the amazing, beautiful, and strange inhabitants of the ocean in the hopes that we will all be inspired to protect it. Don't miss next weeks episode where we dive some of the best wrecks in Oahu and get into some shenanigans on the streets of downtown Waikiki.
