YO 257 & San Pedro Shipwrecks

   United States  Pacific
Honolulu, Oahu, Hawaii

The YO 257 and the San Pedroo are the best wreck dive in the Hawaiian Islands. We have 2 170 ft shipwrecks laying side by side, 75 ft apart at a maximum depth of 100ft. Both wrecks have been there over 25 years and have atracted lots of marine live. There is tons of coral and fish, many big green sea turtles and 2 reef sharks that are permanent residents. It is a great dive for the intermediate (20 dives) to the experienced diver and a must to divers visiting the island of Oahu.

Mida Wreck

   Kenya  Indian Ocean
It took about 30 minutes to this dive site. The wreck is an old steel shrimp boat which is about 120 feet long. My camera was kept busy with an octopus, rock cod, a moray and shoals of batfish. The wreck is quite incrusted so a good opportunity for macro.

Canyon, Watamu

   Kenya  Indian Ocean
This dive is in the National Marine Reserve. A quick 20minute boat ride takes you to a moored buoy. A descent to about 10metres will find you at the reef top. Covered with soft and hard corals. Plenty here to photograph. Just over the edge of the reef is a large arch that was filled with a shoal of glass fish. There are two reefs that you can explore, separated by a gully. We were told that whale sharks have been seen here, but were not lucky enough to encounter one ourselves. We did however see two turtles swimming calmly past, and spotted what looked like a dolphin in the distance.

The Throne Room

   Jamaica  Caribbean Sea
The dive starts by finning amongst coral and sponges and then you can see a gap in the reef. The opening is about 18 feet by 5 feet (be careful not to bash the coral) and as you come through you will gasp at the view. It is framed with colourful corals and sponges (almost like a window). There were several schools of fish and when they passed we could then see why the site was called the throne room. It has a sponge formation that sits on the floor in the shape of a throne.

Amed, Bali

   Indonesia  Indian Ocean
You can either do a shore dive to this site or take a day boat for diving on the wall(a 5 minute swim from shore will get you to the reef). It is a good site for instruction as there is a flat bottom lagoon. There are Napoleon Wrasse and Dogtooth Tuna as well as schools. Lots of colourful coral and macro subjects.

Shark Point , Phuket

   Thailand  Andaman Sea
Shark Point is part of a Marine Sanctuary that was created in 1992, where there is no commercial fishing, and collecting marine life is forbidden. You will find a reef teaming with life, and a sandy bottom where leopard sharks often rest. It is very colourful, with schools of tropical fish, sea fans and soft corals covering the rock. It can be hard work finning with a quite brisk current, but they do tend to run parallel to the reef. A good photograhic dive.

Anemone Reef, Phuket

   Thailand  Andaman Sea
The dive site is a huge pinnacle that starts at its peak just below the surface and then decends some 30m. It took about an hour to reach by boat, but was well worth the wait. We saw sea anemones as far as the eye could see that looked like huge fields swaying in the breeze. There are plenty of fish to photograph, including tuna, barracuda, tropical and clown fish and an abundance of lion fish. Although we did not see any we were told that you could find leopard shark here.

Papua New Guinea

   Papua New Guinea  Pacific
The reefs here are still pretty pristine, and hard and soft corals are numerous in the lagoons, and around the islands and reefs. There is diving for every level of experience, deep reefs, shallow coral gardens, walls and of course WWII wrecks. The main diving areas are Madang for coral and Hansa Bay where you will encounter many shallow wrecks. Tufi has the fjords of Cape Nelson and Wlindi has sone of the most spectacular pinnacle and reef diving. There are also many live-aboard boats that visit the Islands and coral atolls. A lightweight wetsuit or lycra suit is advisable as protection from abrasion etc. The wet season is from December - April but diving is all year round.
