2022/12/14 A Few Dives on Hawaii's Big Island
π 2022-12-14 01:01 in Diving
I had a few days before Xmas and Hawaii's big island sounded like an easy trip, and fun with the recent lava flows, so I went there a few days and did 8 dives over 3 days.

On the first day, I did a couple of dives with Big Island Divers in the afternoon/evening to see the Manta Rays. The Manta Ray Night Dive is spectacular as always:

Water hovered between 27C and 25C even at night, which was borderline cold for my 3mm wetsuit, but thankfully I didn't get cold (I added a hood when not moving much).

The next days, I did 2 more dives with Big Island Divers in the morning:











Kona Shore Divers was super nice to take me last minute for 2 more dives in the afternoon just before the Luau I had that night:









The 3rd morning, for my last hours in Kona before driving to Hilo, 2 more dives with Big Island Divers:
