Hawaii 3.0

Good morning.
 One of the highlights of our trip to Hawaii, was taking a submarine out deep in the bay.
Here's a stock pic of what it looked like....

 The one we were on seats 64. Two rows of seats, each row facing windows on one side or the other.
You take a boat from the dock out to the sub. It pulls up along side and everyone climbs aboard and goes down the hatch. Once all aboard, the boat pulls away, they close and seal the hatch and down we go.
We went down between 50 and 100 ft deep. Beautiful clear water, though my camera didn't take the best pics through the windows.
This first pic is a man made reef for the smaller fish to hide in. There really isn't much of anything else on the sea floor.
There's a reef shark laying on the ocean floor under the wing of a plane wreck. We saw 4 man made reefs, 2 planes, and 2 ships on the ocean floor teaming with fish.


It was really neat to see that. Back on the ship we got a good view of Waikiki on our trip back to the pier.
There were 2 subs operating and this is the second one coming up.
The people running the sub and ships were all very helpful and knowledgeable.  We were glad we spent the money to go. The company even had shuttles that picked you up at your hotel.
It was  a whirlwind 8 days, and we enjoyed every minute of it. If it wasn't for the long flights and expensive hotel rooms, we'd go back every year.
So, that's it on our little trip to Hawaii.
