Concert of Whales

Aloha scuba divers!
Frogfish
      Today on our morning scuba diving charter off the Sea Fox dive boat, we first went to the Corsair dive site. We had a group of 7 certified divers, which lead to nice small dive groups. The surface conditions were good and the visibility was awesome, just as you might expect from oahu scuba diving!
Yellow-Margin Eel
     As soon as we entered the water, we were serenaded by multiple songs by humpback whales. They seemed like they were at the Corsair dive site with us! We made our way down and were greeted by two frogfish on the tail section, encircled by a large school of goatfish and moorish idols. The garden eels were dancing about our perimeter, and a lone starfish picked its way across the sand, heading towards the Corsair wreck. All too soon, we had to head back to gravity, climbing onto the Sea Fox dive boat and seeing a humpback whale breach in the distance.
Red-Stripe Pipefish
Hawaiian Green Sea Turtle

Scorpionfish
     Our second dive was to the Spitting Caves dive site. It was a great day for oahu drift diving. Decently calm surface conditions, and medium current. We dropped into 80+ visibility and began our cruise along the oahu wall dive. We encountered another frogfish, at least 9 hawaiian green sea turtles, 2 pipefish, a couple morays, two scorpionfish fighting, and many different types of reef fish, and more turtles. All in all, it was a great and uber day of oahu scuba diving. Mahalo from the crew and see you underwater!
