The oceans around Oahu are rich with marine life and flourishing coral reef ecosystems. Scuba diving in these waters, you are guaranteed to encounter some magnificent creatures in their natural habitat. This makes every dive experience unique. Under the water, you are able to disconnect from our typical human habits and thought patterns and associate with the marine life around you. Divers build connections to the animals they encounter, perpetuating the spiritual connection to life under water that Hawaiians have always embraced.
Dive sites will become popular amongst certain species and even specific animals. This is largely based on the topography of the area, as well as human interaction with the site. For instance, the Pupukea Marine Sanctuary, spanning multiple miles of North Shore coast line, is a protected marine reserve. This means that boating, fishing, poaching, and disrupting the natural habitat in any way is prohibited. With this culture, the waters of this area are pristine! Dive sites that span the Pupukea Marine Sanctuary have little trash and huge amounts of natural habitats. Reef fish are abundant in these areas, as they know the location to be safe. The protected topography allows for perfect natural habitats for many different species. Hawaiian Big Eyes hover under large caverns. Brightly colored parrot fish scrape at rocks with their buck teeth. Honu, or Hawaiian green sea turtles, float gracefully amongst the skin divers, scuba divers, and snorkelers.
The Haleiwa Trench is a tall wall full of holes, caves and caverns. This makes it an excellent environment for eels of all sizes and reef sharks, who rest on the floor of caves during the day. The Mahi Shipwreck, located off the West Coast of Oahu, provides an excellent home for Great Barracuda, and the same one has been living in the wreck for years. Electric Beach is one of the few places on the island known to have spinner dolphin sightings year-round. Additionally, due to the warm water flowing from the pipe, a huge coral system has formed and allowed for a functional turtle car wash. These are just a few examples of the unique dive sites around the island, and how each brings forth its own personality and marine life features.
Scuba diving with marine life is a wonderful experience, but must be taken seriously. There are challenges associated with these dives, and divers need to be extremely cautious about your interaction. Unsurprisingly, eels pose a threat to careless divers. These animals hide in rocks and depend largely on camouflage, making them difficult for their predators, and nearby divers, to see. Just swimming too close to a wall, or stepping on a rock they’re living in, can result in harm to both yourself and the eel. This is largely due to their poor eyesight, making it difficult for an eel to distinguish between a human finger or a small fish. Similarly, scorpionfish are nearly impossible to detect without careful watch. These fish can cause serious harm to a diver or swimmer who touches one accidentally. Many species, such as the Hawaiian monk seal and the Hawaiian green sea turtle (honu) are protected by law. Touching these animals can result in heavy punishments and/or large fines.
Beyond harm to yourself, divers need to actively avoid causing harm to the local environment. We, as scuba divers, are visitors to the underwater world. It is vital that we respect the area and all who inhabit it. Their homes are sacred and precious, and it is a gift just to witness it. There is no need to alter or take from it in any way. Each part of the underwater world is part of a carefully balanced system, and humans have no right to disturb it. For instance, many divers think it normal to take a shell or small piece of broken coral as a keep sake from a dive. While one missing rock or one small alteration may not make a difference, they begin to add up. If each diver felt justified in removing one shell or piece of coral, the natural habitat would slowly be destroyed. It is not our home, and we should not take from it.
The underwater ecosystem is a beautiful world that we humans are just beginning to understand. We have much more to learn about the topography and marine life of our oceans. One thing we are sure of, however, is the necessity of marine life wellness for human existence. That’s right – without the healthy underwater ecosystem that currently exists, our lives would drastically change. Of course, the destruction of this ecosystem would result in a crash of the fishing industry, which is a global market that sustains hundreds-of-thousands of people. Beyond our diets, our human welfare would be hurt as well. Scientists have recently concluded that 50 – 80% of the earth’s breathable oxygen comes from phytoplankton, a sea creature that lives on the ocean’s surface. That being said, even the air we breathe depends on the health and wellness of the ocean. The earth is extremely interconnected, and the above-ground world relies on the underwater world.
It is truly a privilege to experience the majesty of the ocean. Learn about the connectivity and balance between both worlds. Understand the value and significance of a healthy ocean. Take steps to actively protect and defend the waters, for the benefit of all. Finally, don’t miss out on scuba diving with marine life. This magical experience puts you right in the middle of the beautiful world we’re discussing. There is no better way to feel our connection to the ocean than to actually connect with the life within it. Take the time to breathe underwater, make eye contact with a honu, admire dancing rainbow wrasse, listen to dolphin and whale calls from miles away. The more respect we show to the underwater world, the more we all win.
