This Rubbish did not Soil my Dive!

Early in the week, I get a call from Dave at Blue Wilderness Dive Adventures with an invitation to join them again this year for a trashy dive…huhhmmm…

I mean another Puako Beach Clean-up Dive on Saturday morning, September 18th 😉

Both Andy and I joined in on last year’s effort on September 12; but, “sadly”, Andy had to work on the Mountain this year on the scheduled date.

Four-Wheel Diving!?

Everyone in today’s group met at Kohala Divers at 9:30am, and we caravan up the Kohala Coast from there to find our dive spot for the day!

We’re all here! We gather some suggestions from the dive shop personnel and we’re off!

~Check out one possible: Mmmm…NOPE.

~Check out next possible: Bump, thump…Mmmm…YIKES! No way!

~Check out third possible: Watch that first bit off the highway……


Deep Water and Underwater Navigation Dives complete!

We completed our Bookwork review and quizzing a couple of weekends earlier so Saturday, November 22, 2008, was a day for getting in over our heads and putting two dives for our Advanced Open Water Scuba Certification under our belts 😀

Yes, we completed our Deep Water and Underwater Navigation Dives with Blue Wilderness Dive Adventures Corp. in the Waikoloa Queen’s Market Place on the Big Island.

Note that Blue Wilderness has recently moved from Kamuela to Waikoloa Queen’s Market Place and will be updating their website. Until then, you can call them at their new number: 808-886-0980 to arrange a fun-filled day or night out on the……
