Another day in paradise

Great private charter today... No diving... Just looking for critters and we saw a lot of em!

We watched a few humpback whales on our way up to garden eel cove where we found 200+ spinner dolphins. They were very friendly and spent a lot of time hanging around our snorkelers. Scout spent about an hour swimming with them as well. After everyone was tired we cruised offshore and found a couple groups of pilot whales... There were no sharks with them unfortunately... We were hoping to see some oceanic white tip or silky sharks. The pilot whales were fairly spread out but there were probably around 50 in all.

On our way home we found a hammerhead shark cruising on the surface and we tried to get in to swim with it but it wasn't interested.

Another fun day!

Tough day for scout

Morning charter we dove around pine trees ( kohanaiki )

Divers saw 2 sharks, 2 turtles, 2 lava tubes, a baby frog fish and more...

Between dives we swam spinner and spotted dolphins... Scout had a blast!

2nd dive at freeze face was fun for everyone with lots of critters and background chatter from the dolphins and whales that were cruising around nearby.

After the charter we hung out at the beach with some beers and wine with some turtles that were sleeping together and played fetch da coconut with scout! Poor dog had another tough day!
