    Dive History:
    Pretty much every where in the Bahamas/Carribbean/Yucatan and on the Pacific side Everywhere there is to dive on Hawaii except Niiau, Fiji's outer isles, the Solomons, and our home away from home...the Sea of Cortez where we sail and dive to our hearts content from our 23 ft sailboat Mana Ni Wai. Too many dives to count accurately-best estimate is over 8000 at this time. Russ was on the original research team at UH Hilo to set up the first underwater Marine Parks that were established on the Big Island of Hawaii. Chris is probably at around 2000 dives and one of the bravest and most qualified sailors and divers I've known. We are both doing what we can to save this Planet Earth! (My wife better not see you throw some trash overboard!!) The point is, we all talk about saving the planet and oceans- but people- WE HAVE TO START DOING SOMETHING, ANYTHING TO MAKE IT HAPPEN!! Time is running out. OK? Alright!! Peace, Saildivers.
