Koko Craters

May 21, 2011

After our deep dive on the LCU we headed back towards shore for a shallower reef dive on Koko Craters. As usual in Hawaii there were plenty of Sea Turtles to be found. These turtles couldn't be much more photogenic.

They were so calm and peaceful and non-plussed by the divers curious about them. I had a chance to swim alongside one for almost 3 minutes and marvel at its features and its effortless maneuverability under water.

It also looks like someone went through some trouble to sink some new statues at this dive site since the last time I dove it a couple of years ago.

The one last thing of interest on the dive was the relatively recently severed claw of a crab.
