Night Dive with the Family

August 22, 2009

For me, one of the best things about night diving in Hawaii is that I can bring my family along.  On this night dive I brought along my wife, two kids and my mother-in-law.  My boys, Zachary and Nathan, get a pretty big kick out of it.  Here's Nathan just getting on board.

And here's Zachary pointing out some of the other boats.

The night dive itself was pretty good too.  We headed out to Angler's Reef and got in the water around 7 pm.  One of the interesting things about night diving is watching the fish scatter when you point a dive light in their direction.  This makes you notice fish that you might not normally see.  I'm not sure what kind of fish this is but I the only reason I saw it in the first place was because it moved slightly when I was swinging my light around.


Right at the end of the dive our divemaster, Larry, pointed out a slipper lobster crawling along the ocean floor.  The lobster was really moving so we followed him for a little while.

Thanks to Matt of Island Divers Hawaii for letting the kids on the boat.  A big thanks to Larry for being so good with the kids and everything else.  Sorry about the mess!
