Hawaii shipwreck scuba diving the yo-257 and seatiger of honolulu





Excellent day today with Jim and Yumi. First up was the yo-257 shipwreck. This wreck was was great, hardly any current with many fish to see. We even made it over to the San Pedro shipwreck located about 75 feet from the yo-257. Took many pictures of Hawaiian fish. Just a great fun scuba dive in Hawaii.

Next was the Seatiger shipwreck scuba dive. Had about an hour and half of surface interval so it was time to head over to another cool shipwreck. Seatiger was great, visibility was superb and this cool eagle ray swam right by us on the Seatiger starboard side. Very nice indeed.

Corsair scuba diving shipwreck / planewreck Hawaii





Today was great.The weather was right on cue for a deep dive at the Corsair airplane wreck. A little bumpy heading out but otherwise a quick ride to this cool Hawaii shipwreck well planewreck dive. I won't get into the specifics of the Corsair only because we have this on our dive site page.Here check it out.

Bottom time was around 17 minutes, took tons of pictures and videos and also managed to see some cool amber jacks patrolling around the plane waiting for us to leave so they can eat breakfast. Lots of snappers and squirrel fish make their home hear so the large predators love this oasis.

Next was a cool reef called Corner Pockets. Nice reef with excellent visibility and many many fish. Most noticeable were the millet seed butterfly fish. These guys hung out with us all around actually eating the sergeant major fish's eggs attached to various spots of the reef. A cool Hawaiian sea turtle also hangs out here as well. Depth was about 45 feet and it was nice to spend over 30 minutes here.

Hawaii scuba diving yo-257 shipwreck




Today we scuba dived on the yo-257 shipwreck, located off DiamondHead. Wonderful time, the visibility was great however a slight current , not bad enough to abort the dive but just enough to make you work a little. Plenty of fish, cool turtles and we actually seen Hawaii eagle rays. The Atlantis submarine usually cruises by but was on the surface doing a passenger transfer, this submarine carries roughly 40 people on a tour of the area. Anyway, great dive and we even penetrated the yo-257 a little.

Next it was on to turtle canyons. Great dive and YES , TURTLES ! Hawaiian green sea turtles make their home here creating an excellent scuba dive in Hawaii. Bottom time was around 30 minutes with visibility great in the deeper parts , a little low in the shallow sections of the reef, most likely the tides were heading out at the time. Great time today scuba diving in Hawaii. See you all again.

Oahu scuba dive south shore Hawaii style !






Honolulu scuba diving with Oahudiving.Com

Great day today with Martin and Laura. We had the privilege of diving with a bunch of cool Hawaiian sea turtles at turtle canyons. Visibility was very nice at around 70 feet with a slight surge from a south swell rolling in. Not bad at all. Stay down for around 40 minutes, pretty much getting all turtled out. Scuba diving with the turtles I have to admit is pretty cool, turtles are very layed back here in Hawaii and really don't mind your presence.

Next it was over to buoy reef for some shark action. Bunch of turtles were hanging out in the center of the reef with TONS of Hawaiian reef fish making this scuba dive one that will not soon be forgotten. Nice bottom tome of around 38 minutes

Night scuba dive in Honolulu Oahu- Kewalo Reef




Honolulu scuba diving with Oahudiving.Com

Wonderful time for a night dive. The moon was full with a slight breeze. Seen a cool reef shark that was a little upset at us for shinning our lights in his face, sorry ! Exploring the reefs on Oahu at night while scuba diving is an amazing thing, fish that you otherwise would not see come out and play. Not to mention the the fish you usually see are actually laying in the coral heads sleeping. Yes sleeping. Very neat to see this. Well back to the dive, the visibility was very good at around 70 feet, hard to tell sometimes during the night dives. We got a 45 minute bottom time which is pretty good. Lots of puffer fish were pretty much motionless on the bottom, Jason actually grabbed one a bit causing the puffy to inflate a little. Very cool. Well , great night dive in Honolulu, see you all next year for scuba diving on Oahu.

Honolulu scuba diving on Oahu at turtle canyon dive spot





Hawaii scuba diving wouldn't be complete without a stop at turtle canyons on the southshore. Great scuba dives today with cool HAwaiian green sea turtles and plenty of tropic fish. Most notibly the eagle ray with its beautiful spots and long tail cruised by us in the deeper parts at around 45 feet. These are very cool to take pictures of and you must approach it from the back, otherwise she will just swim away from you. Nice 45 minutes there then on to my favorite reef Kewalo reef.

Great dive there, we actually went a little deeper down to 55 feet but well worth it. Tons of fish, great visibility and I managed to get around 40 minutes of bottom time on this one. Everyone did spectacular considering Brian using a 80 tank.:)

See you all tonight for the night dive...

Honolulu scuba diving on Oahu at turtle canyons




Great day today with Jason and Teressa. First dive was at turtle canyons. Started off very well however the visibilty started going south. Turtles were there and plenty of cool fish so we decided to stay down for about 50 minutes ! What a bottom time while scuba diving.

Next dive was over to buoy reef just outside of the Kewalo reef. Plenty of turtles there too. We also seen some cool reef sharks hanging out next to the lava ledges. We managed to catch a puffer fish and played with a HUGE octopus. One of the biggest I have seen in Hawaii. Gotta rinse gear, aloha ! Oh happy birthday Jason.

****Video will be up tomorrow :( *****

Mahi shipwreck scuba diving - West side Oahu, Hawaii


Was a great day on the west side despite the terrible traffic getting there. As usually, the Mahi shipwreck lived up to its reputation delivering a high impact scuba dive here on Oahu. Visibility was excellent to say the least and what is more, 3 gray reef sharks decided to join us for the first dive.

Second dive was an exact replica of the first, not going as deep but we did do over an hour on the surface for the preparation of this dive. Thank you Kim, Paul and Samantha for the good conversations. We will see you again, and remember you can always call Oahu Diving.Com for your scuba diving adventures.

San Pedro shipwreck scuba diving Oahu

Excellent day for diving. Smooth as a lake today and the sun was shinning. Jason and Jeff's first Hawaii scuba diving shipwreck and everything went AOK ! Bottom time today was around 24 minutes and the visibility around 70 feet. Many Hawaiian green sea turtles and a majestic eagle ray were hanging out. Did some penetrating on the San Pedro and videoed the whole event.
After exploring the San Pedro it was on to the YO-257. Great dive on the yo-257, many reef fish with about 4 turtles hanging around on the main decks. No sharks this time but usually there is sharks. The YO was put down by the Atlantis Submarine.

Hawaii scuba diving in Oahu - shark and turtle !!






What a great day it was today. For the 3rd consecutive day I managed to get my nose sunburned here in Oahu. Anyway, today I had Alan and Bryn. Alan , already certified and Bryn a first time diver. Great dives at both turtle canyons and horseshoe reef. TC was excellent with tons of cool laid back Hawaiian turtles. We also managed to find a curious looking octopus. This was the highlight I thought and Bryn and Alan were totally stoked. After 40 minutes there was time to head back up for new tanks. Headed over to buoy reef. This reefis one of my favorite location and I will tell you why. First, usually you will find bunches of turtles hanging out in the "pit" area of buoy reef. Most of the time white tip reef sharks hang out here and today they were there. No Fear was the objective for this dive so Alan, Bryn and I managed to "box" a shark in the reef to view him closer, but time is an issue here. Push but don't push to hard if you know what i mean.

The mainsail was hosted and off we went. 20 minutes later it on to Horseshoe reef for some fun shark diving. Well one shark showed up but that was enough to have a good memorable experience. See you next year Ken. ERIK

Oahu shipwreck scuba diving on the Mahi !


What a great day today was except for my sun burned nose. Our 5 guests today didn't want to do shallows but instead requested 2 dives at the Mahi. We spent 24 minutes on the first dive and 24 for the second. Conditions were very nice with hardly no wind. (Hot)
Spinner dolphins greeted our boat on the way out and back. Very thrilling to see them jump out of the water with hardly no effort. The viz was great both dives and plenty of Hawaii sea life including a cool
