The New Zoanthid Capsule Collection
Diving the North Shore is tragically, but necessarily seasonal on Oahu. Truth be told, any wet dive is a great dive to us, but the diversity of marine life that the North Shore brings is so refreshing each spring, we really look forward to when we can get in the water up there. Rainbows of unusual nudibranchs, fish and other critters seem to thrive there – or possibly are just easier to find! Either way its always an adventure and we love diving there.
One day in 2015 our expected dive site was far too rough to get in the water so we did a last-minute pivot and went to a different site called Haleiwa Trench. In our experience, the trench had usually been green, murky and had terrible vis! But that was the diveable site, and we were just happy to get wet that day. Haleiwa trench is actually a man-made trench, and over the years many critters have made it home. It’s pitted with small holes and nooks to look into, some with light but most quite dark. A flashlight is really useful there.
