With summer upon us, the North Shore diving season
is open. This also means more Night Dives for ScubaDrew. I will be running
Shark's Cove night dives almost every Friday while conditions last.
Eels are always a highlight on any dive. From the smallest (Dwarf Moray)
to the some of the largest (Yellow Margin Moray), eel behavior can range
from docile and timid like the Zebra or Snowflake Morays to aggressive
and intimidating as found with the Undulated or Yellow head Morays.
Yellow Mouth Moray.

Located outside Waikiki on Oahu's south shore, 100
Foot Hole is an ancient Hawaiian fishing ground that was accessible
only to the Ali'i (Royalty). Despite the name, the 100ft hole is neither
a hole or 100ft deep Although it's 70-90 feet deep, it got its name
from fishermen, who, after being asked how deep it was, answered, "it's
about a hundred feet". The site is constructed from a cluster of
volcanic rocks forming ledges, caves and one large open-ended cavern.
One formation, encrusted with cauliflower coral, houses the main tunnel.
Within that tube there is an obstructing rock that can easily be traversed.
Boats tie off to a naturally formed lava anchorage in 75 feet.Source

Editor's side notes
Our new phrase is, "Do you have a job yet?"!!!!
Now our elation of pending freedom is really not what we want to share with you all, The ceremony is the most amazing graduation I have ever seen.
It was high energy, boisterous, fun, silly and emotional. It was like going to a football game…some families even brought air horns!!! Of course there were the usual speeches, there were 6 valedictorian speakers. The Kahuku high principle received the "Hawaii State Principle of the Year" award. There were over 1.4 million dollars in scholarships awarded to a class of less then 340 seniors. Six 4-year full ride scholarships, 4 for football and 2 for scholastics (one of those is a full scholarship to USC, not bad). All that being very cool, what was really cool was the Ohana ("family" in Hawaiian). Kahuku's love, friendship and aloha really showed through the whole ceremony, especially during the end. This is where all the seniors gather outside the gym and receive hugs, kisses, congratulations and LEI"S. When I say lei's…I mean LEI'S. It was phenomenal. Please click on the image below to watch a quick "clip" of a time we will never forget. Especially the LEIS!!! Country living in Kahuku ROCKS.
