Stout Moray Eel

Here's a Stout Moray (Gymnothorax eurostus) from today. We see these on occasion, they tend to be smallish and less conspicuous so they may be more common than they seem.

We've got a big south swell coming in right now. Our second dive today the viz was much more limited than usual, probably 50-60 feet at depth and 30-40 feet in close to shore- quite poor by Kona standards. In general we can just pull around a point and avoid sandy spots, but we may have to cover a bit more ground than usual to find a protected spot. The water temp was still 75 by my computer today... I'm still keeping my fingers crossed that the swell will bump the water temperature up.
