First Dive at the Haleiwa Trench
Surface conditions were good as we snorkeled  to the trench.  Once below the surface, visibility was less than normal.  There certainly wasn't a lack of sea life as three turtles cruised by us while we were descended. For the first dive we traveled along the trench toward the ocean.

Photographic equipment  and film used during this dive:
Nikonos III w/15mm Lens   Dual Strobes
Film:  Kodachrome 64
