New IMAX film, Deep Sea 3D, features 2 Kona dive sites.

Here's IMAX's link

IMAX has just released thier latest 3D film. It was filmed in 9 locations, one of them being Kona. Apparently it features 2 of our better known dives... Turtle Pinnacle and the night Manta Dive.

The IMAX in Waikiki was shut down recently so we're kind of out of luck for seeing it in this state, but for those of you near an IMAX theater, you can get a pretty good idea of what these dives can be like, without splurging on a plane ticket.

The picture above is of a Whitemouth Moray (Gymnothorax meleagris). These are our most common morays. Reaching to a bit over 3 feet in length, they can come in a variety of shades and spot patterns, but the white mouth is a giveaway on indentification.
