130' depth
Lagoon side

Here's some shots of a "Jake" Japanese surveillance airplane.

Not sure if it was scuttled or shot down. Lots of interested marine life and coral growth.

Noticed the strawberry grouper hanging out in some of the photo’s. two color variations, same fish. I guess the strobe flashes made him change coloring.

Enjoy.

I'm not a huge wreck fan, but I must admit that WWII wrecks fascinate me. One day I'm going to take United Airlines Island Hopper route and dive each island.

Eye bleach time.

This is my dive buddy Jim who loves his speedo's. We have tried to shame him into keeping his board shorts on. Makes for an easy target for the inbetween dive trash talking.

A few folks wear a wetsuit. i personally cant stand them. I feel too restricted, and they are a PITA to get in and out of.
