Hawaii Scuba diving with Rainbow Scuba Hawaii
Aloha Scuba Diving Fans and Super Bowl Fans Alike!
Yes it the BIG Day for my New England Patriots and the defending champion Seattle Seahawks!
The Game doesn’t start until 1:30 pm Hawaii Time so Ken Assured that I would have plenty of time to make it home for the game. He was right.
Yet, the ONLY thing on my mind that morning was a special Private Charter of a scuba diving couple that booked the early deep shipwreck and reef tour that started at 9:30am.
Tom and Hannah(who just happened to be Pats Fand) couldn’t have picked a better day to own the whole boat!
I arrived early with Ken to make sure everything was squared away for the private scuba diving charter. The water & wind were more than exceptional for two newly certified open water divers. After they promptly showed up at 9:20 am we had lots of time to get aquatinted with each other, the diving gear, boat and all the necessary procedures that would encompass our fantastic day out along the blue south shores of Waikiki Beach.
We singled up our lines and were soon making way toward the first scuba diving site of the day, The Sea Tiger!
This famous and massive shipwreck that sits in 122 feet of water just a mile off shore was deserted of other divers so, Tom, Hannah and I owned this dive site! It sure paid off! Thousands of fish, lots of eels and the Biggest octopus encounter I. A long time, happened all In the first five minutes! The octopus was easily 4 pounds big and We have posted a lot of free pictures to prove it!
20 minutes and a three minute safety stop later we were back on board the Scuba Cat enjoying the complimentary beverages, surface interval and 35 minute off gassing rest before our second dive of that morning!
I spoke about not seeing the usual giant green sea turtles and sometimes present shark that hangs around the shipwreck, but I was determined to
Make sure these two guest weren’t going home without these highlights!
With the pressure on and the Super Bowl still hours away I did my best Tom Brady and took them down the field to see Sharks, lots of Giant Green Sea Turtles and even a special treat of 2 massive Commersons Frog Fish who were camouflaged on the reef.
I nearly drained my camera battery taking so may action pics of the two generous and extremely friendly scuba customers, as well as all the spectacular sea life!
It’s days like these that make me and our staff coming back every day!
Mahalo and Aloha to Tom & Hannah for choosing Rainbow Scuba’s Private Charter Option. Everything is available online or go to our website and give us a call!
