SCUBA Dive on the Mahi Wreck
Island of Oahu
Hawaiian Islands
October 27, 2001
 

It looked to be a good day of diving as we left the harbor at 0900 on a sunny Saturday on a twenty-minute cruise to the Mahi Wreck dive site.  After anchoring we entered and encountered some current, but otherwise the conditions were good to excellent.  For this dive I took a Nikonos V with a close-up kit with the intent of captures some of the coral and smaller fish on film.  Towards the end of the dive, we were very surprised to see a pair of Commerson's Frogfish hanging upside down under the roof of the superstructure.

Underwater camera equipment  and film used during this dive:
Nikonos V w/35mm Lens  Close-up Kit   Strobe
Film:  Kodachrome 64
