Nesting Albatross

Every year on Oahu, the Laysan Albatross nest in a refuge on Kaena Pt. If you are patient enough, they will come up to you.

The fledglings grow exceptionaly fast and are almost the size of the adults yet still are flightless and remain covered in baby plumage.

This is one of only a few places in the world where this can be witnessed without the need of a boat.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


Dive Site of the month

 

 

The Airplane is located on Oahu's west side, accessable by boat only. This twin engine Beachcraft lays inverted in about 80 ft of water. Although small in area, this dive site is loaded with an abundance of fish and a nearby cavern is often a sleep spot for White Tip Reef Sharks.

 

Footage from this site is featured in recent commercial created for Captain Bruce's Extreme Comfort Diving

 

 

 


Editors side note.

(written by co-owner/editor Jamie Wheeler)

 

Being a transplant from the big city of Los Angeles to the country life of Kahuku, Hawaii has been unusual to say the least.

Along with editing underwater video, I also find myself caring for "Peeps", a baby chicken who was a victim of its own domestic violence. "Peeps" is the runt out of 17, and was being mauled by its mom.
