    Scuba Dive & Travel the World - DRENCHED Episode. 1
    Drenched



    Published on Nov 12, 2016
    Welcome to our first episode of DRENCHED! Seriously, thank you so much for watching. In this episode, we introduce ourselves a little bit, pack up our ridiculous amount of dive and camera gear, then hop on a plane and head over to the oh so beautiful island of Oahu in Hawaii.

    Once we arrive we don’t waste any time getting in the water. We go out for a day of diving with Island Divers where we start the day off with a wreck called LCU, short for landing craft utility. The LCU has been underwater for about 20 years and sits in 80 feet of water. It was sunk purposefully to become an artificial reef and create new habitat for sea critters. This dive treats us to some great marine life including tiny nudibranchs, spotted eagle rays, turtles, and some old boots!

    Then we hop back on the boat and head over to a site called Sea Caves which is located just around the corner from Oahu’s famous Hanauma Bay. We jump in and swim straight over to a wall where we enter into a lava tube that opens up into a massive underwater cavern. Here we come across tons of awesome critters including more sharks and turtles, devil’s scorpionfish, more nudibranchs, and a wire coral goby just to name a few. This dive blew us away!!!

    With our first day of diving complete, we thought it would be fun to hike up to the top of the crater at Diamond Head State Monument. A big outrigger paddle race was about to cross the finish line in Waikiki, and Diamond Head made the perfect lookout point to scope out all the action. After an awesome but exhausting day, we head to the beach by our house for a killer sunset.

    If you love scuba, travel, adventure, exploration, conservation, and all things aquatic, we really hope you will follow us on our journey.

    Our goal in making these videos is to show the world all the amazing, beautiful, and strange inhabitants of the ocean in the hopes that we will all be inspired to protect it. Don't miss next weeks episode where we dive some of the best wrecks in Oahu and get into some shenanigans on the streets of downtown Waikiki.

    The only world class diving in the USA is located in Key Largo at John Pennecamp State Park. Visibility is very good depending on depth and currents. IT's a good place for snorkeling too.

    If you take a cruise be sure to try the Cayman Islands or Cozumel, Mexico. Belize is pretty good too. The Caymans and Mexico have sometimes 100'+ of visibility. It's like diving in vodka.

    North Shore Pipe Dreams~ DRENCHED Ep. 3~
    Drenched



    Published on Nov 30, 2016
    Welcome back! Thanks for checking out episode 3. We start off with an awesome beach dive at Hanauma Bay in Oahu. Hanauma Bay is a beautiful nature preserve, snorkel and dive spot, and was voted the #1 beach in the U.S. for 2016! We had a beautiful dive with a baby turtle and lots of other cool critters including an octopus, dwarf moray, and a Triton's Trumpet snail. Unfortunately we also encounter a huge net tangled in the reef which we were able to remove.

    After our 96 minute dive, we began an absolutely stunning drive up the east coast of Oahu to the North Shore. We check out some beautiful scenery, eat lots of tasty treats, "help" carve a humpback whale out of a tree with a chainsaw, check out Nate's old stomping grounds, and enjoy a perfect sunset at Sunset Beach and watch some amazing surfers in action. Get ready for a wild ride :)
