Kona, Hawaii Dives

Post by PapaZ » Thu Feb 14, 2019 12:03 am

Enjoyed a couple dives along Kona coastline.
Waters, high winds and surf finally calmed down enough to allow boat diving in mornings.
Usual marine life, some white tip sharks, octopus, no photos

So awesome! Kona diving is great. Love all the butterfly fish pics.

ScubaJess, why did you have to bring up the avocadoes?! Now I'm sitting here at home drooling over year old memories and photos of all the avocadoes, bananas and mangoes that were bought and devoured from the farmers markets that I CANT get here at home. Thanks a lot :angry: :thumb3d:

Always good to see critters from other than local waters. It makes dreaming for travel possible :)
