Diving at Ita Beach Oct. 25, 2003. This site is pretty much a boulder field with I hope still has some nice whip coral. This site also only 4 critters to see. There were close to 100 divers when I was and a lot of pressure on the 4 critters and surrounding life.

This was a 2 dive day trip on Nov. 22 2003. There is only one dive site at this place and it is very popular with the Japanese divers. Timing for the dives is very crucial to avoid the crowds above and below water. The entry can be difficult if you are not prepared for the surf. The site is a boulder field/wall for about 20 meters and goes to a depth of 20 meters. After that, it is a sand bottom from there out into the pacific.

Autumn Beach Night Dive:These photos where taken on Dec 13th. The night was awesome! There was no city lights and no moon could see the Milky Way. I think this convinced some new AOW why night dives are the best.

This is a nice open bay. At the tip of the bay there is a nice drop-off which gives it a little bit of wall. The slug type pics are, from what I am told, the only known illustrations of the species.

I was disappointed to here that we were doing the same sites as last week. The first day it was snowing and very cold, so decide not to mess the camera. The second day warmed up and gave me some very interseting fish to shoot.

This was a two boat and one shore dive day. The boat was interesting as it is also probably used for squid fish. We had a nice shark at 34 meters the camera housing is rated to 30 meters and would not focus. I got the pics from the dive master camera. We also had a lot of nudis and a seahorse on the shore dive.

The second day of the weekend trip brought a less crowded dive site then the first time. We had some new nudis and the Japonise dragonet that I stared at everytime I opened the Id. book. Too bad it was the end of the dive and I was low on air.
