A dive day today, largely a pleasant replay of Sunday’s experience with Molokai Fish & Dive. The early morning easy drive to the harbor, the lowkey loading up at the boat, the small dive group (6 divers) with Annia and Gabe as dive guides, the ease of getting to know the other divers…all such a nice way to get the day going. This trip was with two very young newlyweds from Tampa, a couple in their 40s from Oahu, and two solo divers, one who splits his year between Molokai and Montana, the other visiting Hawaii for the first time, an experienced dry-suit diver whose entire diving experience was in Alaska.
The boat ride to the dive site offered, like most rides here and in Maui, a view of whales doing their thing.
this place seems super-relaxing. The
place we’re staying is spacious, airy, and quiet. After a great night’s sleep we were up and at
‘em for a 6:15 departure/drive to the harbor.
It turns out we were one of three cars leaving this apt complex at that
time. A very pleasant drive allowed us
to chat over coffee while in the sparsely travelled road at that hour—or any
hour, it turns out.
Molokai Fish and
Dive is the only game in town, we learned.
They had two boats going out; one for whale watching, and one for
snorkelers and divers. We were eight
divers with two lovely dive guides, and I’m not sure how many snorkelers were
watched by the boat’s captain.
This was a maiden open
water voyage for a piece of equipment I recently purchased...
