We have been diving a lot at the Hyatt Reef (Canoe Beach – Hanakao’o Beach) lately, due to the current shoreline erosion at our reef in front of our resort, KBC. I noticed this Frogfish on my second dive of the day, and then was lucky enough to find it again on my Night Dive. “Let’s Get Tanked..!!”
So, we were diving at Hanakao’o Beach and had a Hawaiian Hawksbill Sea Turtle swim through our group. We come to discover that is a Hawksbill that hasn’t been catalogued yet. The Hawaiian Hawksbill are protected here in Hawaiian waters and research/data collected daily. We got to name this Hawksbill, so of course we chose BUBBLES !
Let us know if you see her out there … “Let’s Get Tanked..!!”
Meet “Sandy”, an amazing Spotted Eagle Ray who has been hanging out at Airport Beach on a regular basis for the last month or so. She has gotten her name “Sandy” due to always having just a bit of sand on her topside. She displays a “not-worried” behavior to Scuba divers… so if approached slowly, you’re in for a real treat of an experience.
We’ve been seeing this lil creature cruising the sand patch at Honokowai Beach the last couple of days. Definitely one of the larger species of Nudibranch, cruising at 8″ in length. AWESOME !! The Clumpy Nudibranch ( Asteronotus Cespitosus )
We never know what we’re going to come across on our dives, but we always hope it’s something like the amazing Hawksbill Sea Turtle.
Found this cool lil fella today. This White Mouth Morey Eel was only about 10″, but still gave me a big growl !
We came across this cool lil fella walking along the reef at Airport Beach. Kinda like a gentle giant !
I’ve been watching this patch of Mushroom coral grow for the last 10+ years.
I enjoy that they are different than many other corals in that they grow independently from the reef, unattached.
“Let’s Get Tanked..!!”
So AMAZING… After diving the reef out in front of our resort for the last 12 years, I finally
saw my first Frogfish there. And what an awesome critter !! Bright Neon Yellow and all it’s splendor !!
