One of my favorite places to visit is Punta Mita Mexico. It's by far the most luxurious destination with 5-star living and blue water diving at its best. If you want to golf they have this crazy course and "whale of a tale" hole where you need to hit the ball across to an island then go over with a hum-vee to put it in the hole. This shot Ernie Ripley put his ball 4 feet from the hole!
The blue water diving is awesome! We see all kinds of pelagics and if its on we even shoot yellow fin tuna. Sebastian Melani took us out and Wendell and Ernie got to shoot these nice Onos off the rock.
For the ladies, if they want to get a massage or visit the Four Season's Hotel or St. Regis Hotel they can get pampered all day long while the boys are having fun diving.
This couples retreat is by far as relaxing as it looks. A time for some R & R with your special someone. A time to think about the future. A time to poke some BIG fish! Punta Mita here we come!

Terrence Takahata, Sonny Tanabe, and Frank Farm are the legends of spearfishing in Hawaii. They have done so much to promote the sport and we are so proud to have mentors like this to follow in their footsteps.
This years Hawaii's Wall of Fame divers were honoring Lance Otsubo, Jason Hijirida, and Travis Kashiwa for their contribution to the sport. They represented the USA in portugal and continue to help new divers excel their diving skills to new levels. Congratulations guys and Mahalo to Maui Sporting Goods for hosting this years event.

Then today, my friend Puna Apio calls me up and asks if we want to print another one? Wow this one is bigger but I think the boys on the boat want to eat sashimi tonight while its still fresh. Good job Puna! I'll be waiting for my slab:) ha ha!

Hope everyone had a nice Labor day holiday off relaxing. I sure did! Catching up, cleaning up, and gearing up for our next Red Sea Ocean Adventure. We've been getting lots of positive comments about our last HSD show in the Northwestern Hawaiian Islands so we decided to air part 2 featuring Maro reef and Pearl and Hermes Atoll. This was the most wildest place we visited with all kinds of fish in relatively shallow water. We also seen the most gray snapper, "uku" in dive ever! You don't want to miss this show, airing tonight Tues. Sept 4, at 8:30 pm on channel 12 or 1012 or via the web at www.oc16.tv. Tune in and thanks again for watching!
