Dive on the Mahi Wreck
Island of Oahu
Hawaiian Islands
March 3, 2003
 

It was a beautiful day as we began the dive on the Mahi Wreck.  The wreck was sunk in 1982 for divers and since then the middle section has collapsed as the result of large winter waves and sea water corrosion.

The collapse of the Mahi Wreck does not bring an end to one of the worlds best wreck dives.  In many ways, the collapse has opened up more area for marine life to feed and find protection.

Underwater camera equipment  and film used during this dive:
Nikonos V w/20mm Lens   Strobe
Film:  Kodachrome 64
