Makena Landing Night Diving


Took one of my good friend Ryan out for his first night dives last night, just me and him. No other divers were out, and it can be a little creepy but he did great. Visibility was about 15 feet, which is less than spectacular, but at least I was still able to practice my underwater techniques. Im really liking my new cheapo 28mm 2.8, for wider angle type shots (there is also a limit on flash coverage, so getting too wide, say 15mm for a night dive wouldn't really add any benefit unless I had more strobes.

As with anything, the more and more reps I get with my housing and lights, the more confident I am becoming. While we didn't see a whole lot creature wise, I am happy with the clarity and sharpness I am starting to get.
Navigating a night can be really confusing, but thankfully we were able to find the bubble cave (it is FULL of turtles!).
