What an experience!!! In Maui and Oahu I swam with these and others. The Clown Triggers were huge and gorgeous,the schools of Yellow Tangs were amazing and the Green sea Turtles were so interesting and fast and very big! All SW lovers must experience this.But please never touch them-I was inches from them-and never net them.

Very nice---more aquarists need to explore the underwater world...
by the way if you think Hawaii is nice you need to go to Palau...
Hawaii has about 480 species of fish and about 48 species of coral,
Palau has over 1500 species of fish and 700 corals and anemones, WWII ships wrecks and Japanese Zero planes too, okay now I need to go diving!!!... Very Happy

Wow, those are beautiful pictures! I have also swam off the cost of Hawaii on Oahu. We scuba and snorkeled in Shark's Cove, which I heard is the second best walk out dive in the world.

Palau? Never heard of it,but after a google it looks great!!! I love those Pacific Islands-took a cruise to Fanning Island just off the Equator-Republic of Kirabati-very unique-you can see down 100 feet,it is a coral reef teeming with beautiful reef fish.Google it-you will love it....but sadly with global warming in 50 years it may be completely submerged....

Ahh yes, Kirabati---the Line Islands, I agree the Pacific island locations are amazing, I really want to get back out there soon...

I would love to go diving in any of those places, my only concern would be coming home and looking into my small 135gallon tank thinking it looks very drab and feel discouraged.

This topic is making me jealous and want to go diving. Just wish I could afford it.

What a coincidence! Right now I am in the Cayman islands. I just got certified as an open water diver Razz . Every site was different and they were all beautiful. Too bad I'm done with that and I am leaving in 2 days Crying or Very sad . It has made me desperatly want a reef set-up. Maybe one day...
