      Hi! I will be coming to the Kona area on April 1 to the 5th and would love to do some diving - shore as well as boat - and I need a buddy - want to dive? I have all my gear except tank and weights - I am the "tea lady" (created Diversitea...) or if you know anyone else that likes to get wet, please pass my information along to them, or me, if you like.

      What is the water temp now?
