First Dive With Zachary
|February 19, 2022|
First real dive with my son Zachary! It's been a long time coming and it's awesome that's it finally here. We had to wait for a decent weekend of weather but it was totally worth it. We buddied up and went out with just the two us. Nice and easy dive in the Taputeranga Marine Reserve out front of Dive Wellington.
Great dive too. Lots of big Blue Moki.
Zachary did a great job of sticking by my side and was always ready with the okay signal.
I noticed this Hermit Crab that didn't shy away when I got close.
While we were watching the Hermit Crab, the Blue Cod began to gather. They were particularly ornery and were pecking at our masks and hands.
Towards the end of the dive, Zachary pointed out a Sea Perch, which I’ve never seen at Mermaid's Kitchen. Of course, a Blue Cod had to stick his nose into things.
After that we did our 3 minute safety stop and surfaced within reasonable distance of the buoy where we started.
