I do a fair bit of traveling to photograph marine life. In 2012, I will travel to Dominica, Indonesia, and Tonga. While I love seeing different places, cultures, and marine life, I always love coming home to Hawaii. The shore diving within 10 miles of my house is fantastic, easy and fun. What better way to spend a morning than by enjoying a dive on my favorite local reef.
Back in the good old days, I used to dive the reefs along this coast a few times a week. I never get tired of watching turtles rise up form their perch on a coral reef in order to breath at the surface, then slowly swim back down to the bottom and take a rest.
With two kids, caring for two dogs, and running two businesses, I dont as much time for diving as I used to. So when I have a few hours free and the surf is down, you can find me enjoying some back yard diving.
