Today was a great day to be scuba diving here. The ocean temperature is still hovering right at 78 or so, the water was flat, viz in the 150 foot plus range, and there were whales everywhere you looked. We saw somewhere between 8 and 20 whales - we saw 8 on the way to Golden Arches, then tons more on the way back to Honokohau Harbor, many of them on the way back were likely repeats, but not all of them... lots of whale activity in Kona right now. I talked at the boat wash at the end of the day with one of my friends that does whale watches, he said it was like that all the way up to Makalawena.
